Heart Shaker Card (Newton's Nook stamp)

Hello, everyone!  One of my favourite styles of cards to make lately is a shaker card, and this time I've made a heart shape!  My card was inspired by a few challenges.  First there's the Inky Paws Challenge to Use a Heart Shape over at Newton's Nook Designs - I just can't resist this one!  I used a stamp from Newton's Antics and coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.  These two kitties are cuddled up together and they look so cute!  I die cut a small banner shape (MFT) for them to cuddle on!

For the heart shaker, I used my Spellbinders Classic Hearts.  The back of the shaker is embossed with Cuttlebug Cross my Heart.  The dp is from s-e-i.  Inside the shaker I added lots of fun sequins; some are heart-shaped.  I added a Twirled Heart Border from Memory Box as well.  

My colour inspiration came from Colette's Cosmic Colours Challenge #9.  Here are the colours, and I have used four of them.

There are a number of heart-themed challenges going on now that also helped my inspiration (see below).  

I would like to support the following challenges:
