My creation was inspired by my lovely teamie Lols, you see Lols got a new toy and raved on about it so much that I decided to spend some of my Christmas Gift money on one, so this is my very first shaker card using my new fuse tool.

This is a create and Craft 15cm square scallop card blank in white

I used my new Sue Wilson double pierced squares to create the layers and her New York Herald Square for the pretty frame to hold the shaker bits.  I added two rows of pearl strings the usual bow with some beautiful satin pink ribbon, a little IAR pink rose and that gorgeous diamante heart button.

 I love how it turned out, but think the shaker bits were just a little bit too big, I have since purchased some nail art beads, so cheap and perfect for my next play with that fuse tool.

As always I would like to thank all of my lovely visitors for their wonderfully inspiring comments, and I will be over to visit you all soon.
