Shake it up Holly

I was asked to make a card for a friends niece's 10th birthday.  Instructions were, she is blonde, blue-eyed and loves the sea.

I used chose this colour and made a shaker card.  I used an ombre effect on the name and numbers just to highlight  them and accentuate the sea colours.

Image: Bloobell
coloured with Copics
Letters and numbers dies: Sizzix
Shells dies: Cuttlebug
(cut from frosted metallic silver and gold)
Circle Stars Die: unbranded
Corner punch: Couture Creations
Sentiment stamp: fundamentals
Also: distress inks, confetti shapes and beads

Unfortunately when the card is stood up, the shaker stuff falls to the bottom and doesn't show very well.
It just so happened that skyblue is her fave colour and she likes stuff that works.
