..and no colouring!

Hi everyone,
I hope this finds you well and enjoying the day.
We were on vacation last week so I've been a very quiet blogger
 but I'm back now and hope to visit you all soon.

My card today uses no coloured images....a change for me but I quite like how this turned out.  
 I had my lovely, crafty granddaughters over for a visit 
and they were thrilled to make a shaker card with me.  
Here is how mine turned out.


I used the lovely Massa Leaf Die from PoppyStamps and added tiny flowers using Martha Stewart smallest hydrangea punch.   Viva Pearl Pen used for the centers. 
 Thank you cut using silver paper - MB die.
I punched stars out of heavy silver cardstock to add inside the box.
I save some of  the clear containers that my SB dies come in and cut them for the window.
Machine stitching around the edge and there you have it.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
In the Pink Challenge #73 - Pink & Floral
