Koala for Our Little Sweetie

On Tuesday, our sweet little granddaughter is having out-patient surgery.  Needless to say, at 19 months old, we never thought this would be something she had to go through.  So I used the Friday Mashup Challenge #175 and the Fab Friday Challenge #49 to let her know she is on our minds and in our hearts.

At the Beginning:  Pistachio Pudding card stock is the base.  Attached a piece of Lullaby designer paper to Whisper White card stock.  Added retired Baked Brown Sugar ribbon and two pieces of Sweet Sadie Washi Tape.  Layer was attached to the card.
Shaker Layer:  Image from the Kind Koala stamp was stamped on Watercolor Paper with Black StazOn ink.  (Before mounting the stamp to the block, I cut it to
separate the sentiments from the image.  I think it will be more versatile that way).  Blender Pens were used with Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding ink pads to color the bear.  One part of the sentiment was stamped using Coastal Cabana ink and the YOU was first colored with markers and then stamped on the image layer.  For good placement, I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  This was cut out with one of the Ovals Framelits.  The frame was cut out of Pistachio Pudding card stock with the same framelit and the next smaller size.  I also used the larger framelit to cut out the Window SheetIn Color Sequins were used as the shakers.  There is a good tutorial for making a shaker card on Dawn Olchefske's blog here.  I attached the shaker with Glue Dots.
The Finishing Touch:  To finish if off, I added a double bow of Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine.

Please keep my granddaughter in your prayers for a successful surgery on Tuesday.  Thank you.  I hope you visit again.
