Shake, Rattle and Roll!

You may have noticed that I often use song titles for my blog posts, I can't help myself, if I hear a sentence or conversation or just a word that reminds me of a song, it just springs into my mind and I end up singing it all day.  Well today it's Shake, Rattle and Roll and all because I have made a rocker/shaker card, it's full of little tiny beads, so  it does actually shake, rattle and roll (well rock really, but am using artistic licence there LOL!) 

For this card I have used one of the Create-your-own graphic sets from the Clipart Fairy store? these super little sets come with the two girls, but they're armless, awwh! also included is a couple of arms in different poses, and some extra bits and pieces to make up your own design. How brilliant is that?!. 
I've used Emma and Erin Create Your Own Graphics - Lilac set, there is also a blue set and a pink set.
For only 99p you get all this...

Emma & Erin Flowers Create Your Own Graphics- LILAC SET

I put the images together to create the two girls holding hands one with a bunch of  flowers and the other a plant. I printed them out twice and layered them onto a scalloped circle I had made in Photoshop using papers from the Gorgeous Papers 5 set, ( I love these papers, and this set contains my two all time favourite colours, turquoise and lilac/purple), I added a HunkyDory shaker dome, with lots of little no hole beads and nail art sequins in it and covered it with a matching frame. I also made the scalloped rocker base in Photoshop, and the word art circle. I printed some of the papers from the set onto pearlescent paper, and die cut some spiral roses with a Marianne Creatables die. The swirl is a Magnolia Doo Hickey. I also printed out the little bird and sat him on the swirl. My card also has quite a bit of glamour dust to add some sparkle. 

You may have noticed my girls have a mouth, they freak me out when they don't have one, so I just have to add one!

It also has a matching insert, but I forgot to take a photo!

There are quite a few create your own sets with different graphics in, so pop over to the store and take a look, and while you are there check out the Gorgeous Paper sets too.

There is also a couple of freebies over on the Clipart Fairy blog, go here and here to snag them.

Fantastic Colette - just love the way you've put this together. I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets freaked out by images with no mouths; that's why I can't use Tilda's! xx
