Just Because

Hi all,
Just a quick post to share a few things I made for my granddaughter, Desi. She's 7 years old, lives far away from us in Florida (we're in NJ), and loves the color 'Pink'! She also happens to be the apple of my eye! So for Valentine's Day, I decided to buy all the things I needed from Papertrey Ink to make a few hair barrettes for her...and it was fun!

I created my own patterned paper using PTI stamps, and also used their felt (so yummy) to make the flowers and hearts. The roses are MFT Rolled Roses, and the hearts are from Lawn Fawn. 
While I was at it, I made a headband using Avery Elle's Embellish It Flower:

Of course I need a card, right?

I had Laura Bassen's hilarious video tutorial (minus the "smile") bookmarked for making a shaker card, and thought it would be a fun idea. I used all PTI stamps, dies and impression plate (card base). 

Well, that's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Supplies for card:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Four Square
Ink: Papertrey Ink - Berry Sorbet; Versafine - Onyx Black
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Select White, Berry Sorbet, Clear
Dies: Papertrey Ink - Four Square
Impression Plate: Papertrey Ink - Diamonds
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh - Pink
