Carrot Banner Wreath

It's challenge time again at May Arts Ribbon!
As the banner says...they give you the create.
You must be one of the first 20 people to sign up, so go --here-- for more info.

 Here is a look at the Inspiration Board and Retro Themed Ribbons:
Seriously yummy, right?
For my take on the challenge, I was able to use all but the bottom right green
ribbon in my design.  I came up with this cheerful Spring Banner that now
graces one of my larger grapevine wreaths:

To begin, I started with six sheets of scalloped rectangle chipboard by Maya Road.

 I cut each piece down into a triangular shape as shown above.  
Next, I painted the very top with a lime green acrylic paint.

I used the orange scallop grosgrain ribbon as the base of the carrot.  After cutting
the desired lengths for each chipboard piece, I ran the ribbon through a 3" Xyron Sticker Maker.
Just apply the strips of ribbon to the triangle and wrap the excess around to the back.

 Where the grosgrain ribbons met, I accented those areas with the yellow loop trim.

 I accented the top of each carrot with pink pom trim and the new gorgeous
sequined elastic trim.  I tied all of the panels together with the turquoise sheer
ribbon and then attached it to the wreath with a heavy gauged wire.

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
