Pretty Purple Shaker Card

I guess challenges are supposed to be challenging. When I saw the CAS-UAL Fridays Shaker Card Challenge, I decided to skip it. You see, I have made a couple of shaker cards before and they were complete fails. However I thought my soon-to-be 6 year old niece might really like one and I bought this stamp set from CAS-UAL Fridays just for her birthday so last night I gave it a try. I also am not very good with the watercolors but I broke those out too and this happened:

I embossed the ballerina image in black then I just put a little puddle of water  around the ballerina, added the purple watercolor and flicked a few sprinkles. I was careful not to overdo...which is often my worst habit. Then I watched about 14 You Tube videos on assembling a shaker card and was able to put this one together. I added some large purple cupped metal sequins which are actually a bit too large and get stuck as you shake it but other than that I am happy with the final result.

Since I used those dang metal sequins I am going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Heavy Metal Challenge in addition I am entering this card in
