At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous The East Wind¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Isn’t Spring Melody by The East Wind¬†just so pretty?After my recent rediscovery of shaker cards I thought I’d go down a more girly route…filled with sequins,beads ,gems and prettiness ūüôā She’s been coloured with Spectrum Noir Pencils for a soft look,fussy cut and popped up on foam tape.No blending solution here,just layers of pencil to merge and shade.Some lovely,glittery paper for the top¬†piece.A stamped greeting ¬†and that’s it ūüôā I felt with all the glitz I didn’t really need to add anything else.Nor did I want to cover the sparkly paper too much¬†ūüėČ

This is going in my collection of cards for my DD2’s birthday – in October!She loves listening to music so this is perfect for her ūüėÄ

(I did see a card that inspired this one.Sorry,I always give credit where it’s due¬†but¬†I’m not able to this time as¬†I cleared my History and no longer have the link ūüė¶ )
