Congratulations ...

(not easy to photograph a card with an acetate front)!

Lili of the Valley are celebrating their 13th Birthday & I wanted to join in the fun so I have made a Birthday shaker card. On first look you will see I have used the stamp 'It takes two' as the main image but I have also used the balloons from stamps;  Balloon Bunny,  Little Lorry Bear & From all of us.

(A close up picture of the inside)

Shaker was made on my Silhouette, coloured with Promarkers & pencils. Hand stitched, white organza ribbon, cupcake charm, shiny noses and some sprinkles from my stash.

Wishing LOTV a very happy 13th Birthday
