Sailboat Shaker Card (ITDK)

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a fun shaker card I made with the April Digi of the Month from Imagine That... Digis by Kris. This is a progressive challenge. Since I made a card last month using the March digi, I received this April digi for free! You can join at any time; see details here.


I think this sailboat would be great for a boy's birthday card so that's what I made! I added the ocean waves that also came with the April set. The cloud paper is from Little Scraps of Heaven, and it was a freebie at one point. The cute sun is from Miss Kate's Cuttables, another freebie; and the sentiment is from Imagine That...Digis by Kris, from the Birthday Seahorse set. The dark-blue patterned frame is also ITDK, from the coordinating paper pack available as a Pixel Scrapper Blog Train freebie. The white shaker frame was die cut using Simon Says Stamps stitched rectangles. Inside the shaker are sequins in blues and golds.

I would also like to support these fun challenges:  Cardz 4 Guyz AG Something Beginning with S (sailboat, shaker, sequins, sun, sea) 1/3; Craft Your Passion Always AG 2/3; Craftin Desert Diva's AG UE; Crafting from the Heart AG 2/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper April UE; Creative Fingers AG 1/3; Creative Inspirations AG Optional Sketch UE; Die Cuttin Divas AG 1/3; Dies R Us One for the Boys 1/3; DL.ART April Linky AG UE 1/day; Fresh Brewed Blog The Sky's the Limit 1/5; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack AG 1/3; Lady Bug Crafts AG 1/3; My Craft Creations April AG UE; Natalie and Amy Frame It 1/3; Not Just Cards AG UE; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 1/3; Scrap and Craft Frame It 1/3; Scribble and Scrap AG 2/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Happy Birthday 1/5; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; V's Sweet Ideas AG 1/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5

  37. This is fun AND gorgeous all rolled into one. I know it isn't really girly so it doesn't classify as gorgeous to some... but I can call it what I want, right? hehehe!
    I love the sky and the fun image.. but those sea colored sequins stole my heart. Beautiful design!
