Freshly Made Sketches and Verve Diva Dare

Good evening my crafty friends! Hope y'all are having a great
weekend! We finally got moved into the house yesterday 
so had our first night here last night. Unfortunately because of
the storms I didn't sleep well... Been trying to stay busy
today to keep from taking a nap. We still have some thing to get 
out of the shed and garage at the old house but have to 
wait a few days until the rain dies out to finish building the new shed.

Anyways I took a break from unpacking and decided to make
a shaker Father's day card for my daddy. I used the current
sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and am also entering my card
into this month's Verve Diva Dare which is called "A Man's World."

For this card the Timberline paper pack from Close To My Heart
along with some Kraft CS. The sentiment stamps are from Verve.
I stamped the sentiment in CTMH Twilight ink and also
inked the edges of the card and tag with a sponge in
CTMH Chocolate ink. I used two different sizes of Marvy tag punches
to do my shaker part. I used a bit of a clear acetate sheet and 
3D Foam Tape to finish off the shaker box. The sequins 
are from Hobby Lobby. for some added embellishments I used a
random assortment of twine and ribbon and some Triangle Studs.
