Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit Card

Hi all :-) I hope you're all enjoying a lazy Sunday and managing to find some crafty time :-)

I have another card to share today using the May card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I know I have said it before but i think these kits are such a great deal ! So many products in there and for a bargain price + when the kit arrives it feels like receiving a birthday pressie every month :-)

I made this following this weeks fab sketch on the Less Is More Challenge 

I love making shaker cards,, I always think they are so much for fun, especially for small children.  I used the star stencil to create the starburst and used star sequins and some diamond dust for the shake, the diamond dust is quite heavy and makes a fab 'shaker' sound. 
I used some plaid paper from the kit to paper piece the sneakers.

Thanks for looking :-)  I have to go and cook lunch now ,,, hope you all have a lovely day :-)

Challenges :
Less is More ,,,,,, Sketch
Open Minded,,, Sports and Activities 
The Squirrel and the Fox ,,, Die Cuts/Punches 

Hope you all have a great day :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
