Nailed It...

I have a few friends turning 40,  so I dug through my stamps and found this new set (to me) from Technique Tuesday and it had the words "nailed it" 
I loved the sentiment and it is so perfect for how I felt turning 40 and the celebrations that went with it!

I needed a starting point so I headed on over to Mojo Monday and got a design inspiration, and then went to Just Add Ink and checked out their inspiration piece.  While I couldn't do anything with the fruit, the pink tones were perfect.

The bottom layer of the shaker is a project life card from the love notes kit by we r memory keepers.  I used a stencil and some texture paste to create the raised "coffee splatter"background and stamped a happy birthday sentiment.  I wasn't happy with the raised textured part being white so ended up colouring it before assembling it all, with a bit of pink ink to make it stand out more.

I layered another die cut project life card on top of a clear piece of acetate, then onto  dimensional strips to raise it for the shaker.

I added a silver metallic doily and a clear faceted button and twine.

Thanks for looking.
