Happy Thoughts

I made this fun shaker from the leftover frame from the birthday card the other day.  Seriously. Love. It.   My favorite part might be the word background.  FYI that I stamped the pink thoughts first and then the green ones around it so the focal sentiment would be in the correct location for the diecut word.

I used cardstock to build the necessary depth for the sequins which never fail to stick to the foam tape I've used in the past (argh!!).
Pros:  Turned out well, used up cardstock I don't like, no sticking sequins, leftover diecut middles for tags or something later.
Cons:  Took way longer than foam tape would have

The Details:  Tim Holtz watercolor paper, Penny Black Floral Tapestry stamp, Avery Elle Die, Hot Off the Press Simply Susan sentiment, Distress Inks, Versamark,  Hampton Arts clear embossing powder, Memento New Sprout and Rose Bud
