I put this card together with the colour inspiration from the #PPA311 colour challenge.

 I wanted to add extra depth and shadows so I used my daubers to sponge the colour onto the back die cuts to deepen their colour and then separated the two layers with dimensionals to provide a real 3d look.  To bring out the texture in the brick wall embossing folder I again used a dauber to lightly build colour.  I finished the flowers off with some pearl accents for a bit of bling.

This is my first ever shaker card and while this card didn’t quite come out the way I had seen it in my head and I had dramas galore I think that I eventually won the card battle still I think I will have to keep on playing with this bundle and see if I can make the card in my head!
