Butterfly Shaker

Ok, Ladies, you have been warned!!  I have been making cards for over five years and this will be only my second attempt at making a shaker card. But, over at this week's challenge at the sketch is perfect for a creating a shaker card. As you will be able to didn't go too well. I am even ashamed to post this card, but I wanted to challenge myself and give it "that old college try". If you look close enough (but, please, don't!), you will see quite a few boo-boos. I filled the plastic cup with all kinds of bling, glued it down, flipped it over and BAM, everything went all over my desk...uuuuuugh!! I only have today to work on this card and no time to re-do it.
I embossed the yellow pattern paper from the DCWV "Pocket Blossom" stack with a Cuttlebug "Chicken Vines" folder and the background purple paper with a Cuttlebug "Leafy Vines" folder. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch, and added some Bling here and there.

Thank you for following TurtleBug's Trail!
