So Thankful FOR YOU!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone! 
I hope you are all having a great day:) 
Today is my little sweet pea's 3rd birthday...Wow, I can't believe she is 3 already! She is a blessing and I just love the time I get to spend with her:) We are also so excited that her little sister will be arriving in February....Grand baby #2 for us!! 
Today I also have a shaker card to share with you.  I made this for a friend of mine whom I'm so thankful for and just don't tell her near enough. 

I started with a white card stock base. The base layer is another layer of white card stock that I distressed using my zutter DIA. I then followed with a layer of pretty pattern paper from Recollections, which I also distressed. 
 I used the Spellbinders Fair Isle Pendant die for the beautiful frame.  Inside the shaker, the sentiment is stamped with My Craft Spot's Thank You stamp set and sequins and mica flakes were added before I put in place. 
The butterflies are created with the EK Success layering butterfly punch and with foam dimensional adhered them down. I added some sparkling ice glitter and a few gems to the center of each butterfly.  The gem flourishes are from Recollections and I finished with a double bow using ribbon from my stash, jute string and a pretty polka dot button.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) My Craft Spot Challenge #157 Sequins
2.) Scrapy Land Challenge #5 Anything Goes(include a die Scrapy Land sells-Spellbinders
3.) Sweet Stamps Challenge #195 Lovely Layers
