Raining Hearts

     This card was inspired by the raining hearts on my blog.  I just love them.  Thank you Cheryl for sharing them with me, I may keep them forever.  I learned to make this style of shaker card from my friend Eve.  It's so fun since it's like a little book with shaker on the inside.
      Here is the outside of the card, which looks like a traditional Valentine card with all my favorite Valentine embellishments.  The top also has a beautiful piece of satin and organdy ribbon to "bind" the shaker book.
     And here is the inside with the shaker.
     I have used one of my hundreds of House Mouse stamps for this card.   These images never fail to make me smile.  I found the heart confetti in my grocery store of all places, who would have thought?  As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a shaker card with it so tucked right into my cart with my other necessities, milk and cookies.
