One of the ladies from our Bible Study fell and broke her foot.  Actually, shattered would be closer to the truth.  She will be in rehab for several weeks, so I made this card to let her know she's not forgotten.

For the shaker portion, I used a piece of dsp from the Tribal Chic dsp set at Lil' Inkers.  The stitched square die also came from the same company.  The two pieces of cardstock are from scraps (again!) in my stash, and I like the way they work together.  I also had the same colors in my sequin collection.

Once the shaker was made, I attached it as shown and proceeded to add the flower.  I used two of the dies from the Botanical Blooms set and some -- you guessed it--scraps again.  I sponged the petals with Fired Brick Distress ink and added them to the corner of the shaker.  Using a Martha Stewart fern punch, I added a few of them underneath with glue dots.  The greeting was punched with the window word punch and reinserted on the right side to make it smaller.

I hope this card brightens the day of a lady whose fall has shaken up her regular routine.
