Butterfly Wishes 37

Happy May! It's time for a new MFT Color Palette Challenge! This month we will be playing with the pretty color palette shown below:
Shaker cards are so trendy right now so I thought I would give it try. I created the shaker using the Die-namics Insert-It InstaFrame die, Sweet Tooth cardstock x 2 and a piece of vellum paper. 
Once I had the shaker assembled, I stamped a sentiment from Winged Beauties then filled with lots of tiny die cut pieces that were made using the Die-namics Flying Butterflies and Die-namics Peek-a-Boo dots dies. The little pieces remind me of Pillsbury's Fun-fetti cake mix :) I completed it with a stamped / die cut Berrylicious butterfly from Winged Beauties:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Seize The Sketch sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you join along in the fun! The monthly prize is a $15 Gift Voucher to My Favorite Things, but if you use MFT stamps in your project, you’ll receive an extra $5. Be sure to visit the MFT blog for additional inspiration.
Be Sweet ;)
