cQc #333 ~ Good Luck!

Hiya peeps! I'm back today with a card for our latest palette at ColourQ. We're going green this week and the DT has knocked it out of the park yet again! Be sure to visit them for a boat load of inspiration. I had fun making this wee shaker, hope you like it!


This started out as something completely different. I made a watercolored panel and only liked one small portion of it. Watercoloring is not my forte!! I cut out that small piece, stamped the DeNami shamrock and sentiment on it and used it as the back of my shaker. A die cut Stitched Photo Frame (Pretty Pink Posh) finishes up the shaker that's filled with Mossy Green Sequins (4mm & 6mm) and Gold Mini Heart Confetti (also from PPP). Before popping this onto the card base I stamped the splatters from Precious Remembrance Shop's Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.


I'll be entering this at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where they're asking for a bit o' green. My big brother will be receiving it with words of encouragement for an upcoming neck surgery. Have a terrific day and thanks for visiting! ~Lisa
