A Spring Walk -- Graduation Shaker Card

I created the shaker window with the frame from the "Build a Scene - Calendar" set by Taylored Expressions. The black frame was made with real black satin material that I harvested from a very old winter coat! I filled the shaker with gold stars; the black & gold are my nod to graduation, as I made this for my neighbor who is graduating from High School next month. The sentiment is from Art Impressions' Flying High Clear Set. I used a pastel color palette for the balloons with Copic markers (R20, B12, YG41, Y02, YR61/E95, BV000, V12, E41). I doodled the outer frame.



Inspiration/Challenges:
Less Is More #324: CAS + Spring Walk (pastel colors; clear days; Graduation)
Paper Players #340: CAS + Vehicle (hot air balloons)

Thank you for visiting,

This is such fun as well as being very elegant too! That was genius to add the gold stars as they match the 'sky' in the sentiment perfectly. Fantastic CAS shaker card! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
