Shaker card

Good evening friends,
I didn't think I would still get a chance to show a card tonight, but here I am. Had a busy day doing a class this morning and then went and had lunch with the family as it was my granddaughter Kellie's birthday.
We have had such very hot weather the last 10 days, with temps soaring to 30 to 32 deg. and no rain. I am just so tired at the end of the day, but it won't last too much longer I am sure, as long as we can get some rain, as the garden is really suffering and we are spraying but it isn't enough.

This card  I made for a class last week and haven't had a chance to post it here yet. I hadn't made a shaker card in ages, but needed samples for class, and making it was fun .

For the background in the shaker box I used a new embossing folder with butterflies and added a little colour with distress inkpads. I used a variety of memory box dies..birds and flowers, butterfly punch and flower punches in the shaker box. The tree is a Marianne die, and the sentiment is from Justrite stampers.

A, entering the following challenges:

Craft Catz challenge...Dies and punches
Inspire me Fridays #97...Anything goes
Make it Monday...Anything goes

Hope to see you back soon, have a wonderful weekend and take care.
Love, Ursula
