Try it, you might like it!

Welcome to my "try it, you might like it" blog post. This week at Lala Land, the challenge is to make a shaker card. I've never done this because it looked really hard. I've really wanted to, but again, I thought it would be too hard. Well, thanks to this wonderful SCS tutorial they linked to in the challenge, I was able to make this card so easily! I used mega deckled rectangle nestabilities to make the shaker package from Bo Bunny's back to backs Mellow Yellow Dot cs and used some pink glitter on the inside. The dp is from echo park paper co's Sweet Summertime collection. It's called pinwheels. The birthday sentiment is by Kolette Hall and of course the star of the show is Birthday Lala (I cut her hair again!). I used stickles in various places to add some sparkle. Oh, I also paper pieced the present she's holding! I hope you enjoy and try something new today, you might like it!

Blessings!
