My niece Lucy is seven next week and is currently going through the pink and glittery stage! Hence the need to use lots of pink and sequins in today's card...

I've made the shaker using circle dies, acetate and loads of sticky pads. What I learnt today is that sticky pads are also sticky on their sides which is why there are sequins all around the edge - next time I do a shaker I'll need to use something to get rid of the stickiness!

I've tried to create an embossed effect behind the shaker using white die-cut numbers on a white backing and I've added a computer printed greeting - Copperplate Gothic font.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Crafty Friends Challenge - clean and simple
