One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

A little watercolor and a little Rock n Roll PLUS a shaker!!

Lots going on here, huh?
First a little watercolor for fun,
then a little rock n roll (notice the balloon animal)
and last but NOT least, a shaker in the word "birthday"!
and then I had to add those sparkly stripes to the background to go with the sparkly silver sequins on the front of the card!

stamps:  Avery Elle: Party animal, Impression Obsession: Thin Stripes
dies:  PTI: birthday word, PTI edgers die
ink:  distress for watercolor, PTI: spring rain, blueberry sky (the balloon animal)
misc:  Wow metallic silver sparkle embossing glitter


  1. LOVE this card Colleen! Your water coloring looks great, and I just love the colors you chose too! And of course the birthday shaker part is fabulous, as who doesn't LOVE a shaker card!! Have a great weekend! :0)

  2. Oh wow, you have been busy. And how clever to make the birthday sentiment a shaker. Great cards.

  3. A very festive and beautiful card, love those watercolors, the the shakertext and the
    ballondoggie! Nice weekend, Colleen!

  4. What a fun shaker bday card! Love the little balloon dog and the water coloring!
