Just Us Girls #289 Color Challenge

I was inspired by my friends Judy and Sharyn to join in this weeks JUGS Challenge.  It is color week

.Lisa chose  White or Beige and Brown, and a color of your choice.  I chose Pink!

I saw this card a few weeks ago done by Debbie Hughes.  I  got the die that was used to make it soon after that. The die is an umbrella turned upside down and made into a shaker.   
 You can see the card that she did Here   This is my take on her card. 

GKD heavy and light card stock in White
Brown Card stock from Bazzill
Clearly Besotted stamp and die, Remember
Distressed Ink Picked  Raspberry
Stitched rectangle die, Lil'inker
Memento Rich Cocoa ink
Simon Says Stamp for the sentiment, Birthday Messages
Secquins from PTI, and pearls from my stash
I promise that I will not be posting again today/  But tomorrow is a different day.  Who knows what will happened then.
Thanks so much for stopping in to see what I do with my free time.
