Guess what I've made as my inspiration card...yep! A shaker...a baby-themed shaker...with the sweetest sentiment and cutest Ladybug EVER!


A sponged distress ink background in baby colours, sequins, a couple of fabric flowers...Voila!  The card has become the 'sole property' of my husband to celebrate the arrival of  a colleague's new baby! Thrilled that my little bug is heading to a good home!

  4. Oh my, you created a beautiful background for the oh so sweet little ladybug. Those pastels are perfect for welcoming a precious baby into the world. And that you made it a shaker is perfect. Babies (well maybe just a tad older than one coming home) do love their shakers! :) Big hugs!
