Aphrodite Twila

It's Day 2 of  Sneak Peeks from the CC Designs new release.

I decided to use the gorgeous Aphrodite Twila and make a shaker card.
She was lots of fun to colour and she comes with the love heart music notes too. They are separate so you can stamp them where ever you like, which is great!  (And as CC Designs are clear stamps now, you can easily see exactly where you want them to go :)

I made the frame for the shaker by using the squares #1 die and the make a card #10 die for the rectangular window.  I stamped and embossed with silver the "hugs and kisses" from the Smoochie Sentiment set and the tiny hearts above that are from the new make a card #12 die.
This new die actually has a beautiful frame with tiny hearts all around it and the hearts I've used here are from the "left overs" from cutting out the frame.  I also used these tiny hearts as the confetti for the shaker. It's a little hard to see in the photo but she is resting on a layer pretty hearts.
The pink paper comes from the new Smoochie paper pad.
