Shell-ebrate Shaker Birthday Card

Good morning everyone! Hope you are having a good start to your day! Me, I have a very sharp pain in my side-stomach.  I don't know what could be causing it. It started last night and is not any better. Also it is going to be hot, hot, hot here this weekend!          I wanted to share a little card I made for my granddaughter Ruby. It is for her first birthday, can you believe it!!! I colored the little image kind of like a bathing suit she has. This is the first shaker card I have made and it was so much fun creating it. She and Mom like to go to the beach as often as the can. Actually her Mom (my daughter) goes on sea turtle hunts with a sea turtle organization where they live. She went on one the other night and they saw one. The sea turtles are very protected and it is a way to document them. 
  Please excuse the light mark on the car. It was so hard getting good photos because of the plastic window.
  I filled the window with sequins, glitter and pearls. I thought Ruby would enjoy seeing them move around when Mom shakes it.
  I wanted to emboss the card too. I think it looks so pretty. You know me and embossing!
  Isn't she a little cutie!
  Here is the inside of my card.
I even embossed the back, it is a seashell after all.      Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  5. What a ADORABLE shaker card!!! Love it!!! Have a great day.

  6. Oh dear on the tummy pain. HOpe it is much better today, or that you get it seen to quickly. Enjoyed reading about the sea turtle hunts. When we first moved to Florida, we used to do that. Then before we left, one had to go on 'organized walks' as people were disturbing the turtles, so private walks were frowned upon. It's so interesting to watch this and fun to take a night stroll by the ocean too. Happy Birthday to your little one! You're celebrating it with a card that is sure to delight her. Love the tiny sweet image, you've done as a shaker. Absolutely LOVE your embossed frame too. Such a wonderfully detailed card. Thanks for becoming a new follower, and I've just joined as your newest follower too! It's lovely to meet new friends. I'll be giving you & your blog a welcome shout-out on my next post, so that perhaps MY friends can become YOUR friends too! Thanks for sharing your darling card, and have a good week. Hope you feel lots better. Hugs
