Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
As I mentioned yesterday here is my entry into the current Butterfly Challenge.
I decided to make a shaker card for this, and it's a very long time since I have made one of those.
The theme is K for kraft card and or kaleidoscope.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I have a very old CD of Joanna Sheen's that has kaleidoscope  flower images on it so I used one of those under the acetate, and glitter.
butterflies came from an old hair scrunchy.

Thank you for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Beautiful Jenny! This card is hypnotizing, I couldn't take my eyes off that stunning border of glimmery butterflies and your focal piece is amazing! Love it! hugs :)

This is amazing Jenny, the butterflies are incredible and must have taken ages to stick down. I used to love kaleidoscopes as a child so this brings back really happy memories xx

Fabulous shaker card Jenny. I have just made one for my sister's birthday using of all things buttons for the shaker element. I love the sparkly iridescent micro beads with the beautiful flower head behind. Perfect for my challenge. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge where your card will be entered twice.
Hugs Mrs A.

A gorgeous shaker Jenny and it looks just like a kaleidoscope. I remember getting one of those in my stocking when I was a child and being mesmerized by it. Barbxx

Hi Jenny,
It's Norm here. This might take a while as I'm having to type with my left hand. Thankyou for following my exploits all this past month and leaving me such lovely comments. I'm really chuffed at having a fan base. Secretly pleased though that I don't have to get up early anymore and race through my breakies in order to check through my photos and write my post up for the day. Hugs Norm.
