Pinkfresh April Challenge - Frames and Shakers

Pinkfresh Studios is kicking off a BRAND NEW April Challenge: Frames and Shakers - paired of course with the option a fun color combo! I hope you'll come play along for a chance to win some amazing prizes - you can enter cards OR scrapbook layouts!!!

Here is the challenge info and inspiration photo:

I decided to use BOTH frames AND shakers for my card to share today - to make this colorful and bright birthday card!

Can I just say how much I LOVE the Pinkfresh liquid watercolors? I used several of them to create the panel that fits behind the windows on these. The top left combines Bubblegum and Clementine, the bottom left combines Candy Apple with Clementine, top right uses Aquamarine and Emerald City, and the bottom right uses Sunshine with just a touch of Clementine. These were the perfect color combinations to achieve the challenge colors for me.

For the windows, I die cut 4 of the Floral Squares dies from black cardstock, then lined them up and cut them all out of one piece of white cardstock to create the windows. Then I was able to fit the black die cuts into the white panel and have the contrast in there so perfectly.

I created 4 individual shakers - one for each window - and filled them with sparkly clear sequins. What's better than a shaker on a card? Why, four shakers on one card, don't you think? I finished off with a sentiment from Make a Wish stamp set, stamped on a hand trimmed banner and adhered with a bit of foam adhesive.
