Meet Edna - Stampingbella

I've attempted a new picture because the one below was very poor.  This time I set the card upright rather than lay it down which did turn out better except all the sequins fell to the bottom.
Hi there and I hope all is well with you.
Today's card is a Stampingbella image called Meet Edna.  Of all the lovely Stamping Bella stamps, I think Edna is my favourite.  She has an adorable sweet shyness to her but I think she also has a campy, vampy side... maybe after a couple glasses of wine?  At any rate, I do like her.
The card was very easy to work up because Blogabella has a sketch to follow for this week's challenge so that's what I used in the design but I decided to make it into a shaker card.  The phot did not turn out like I'd hoped... I had to photograph it laying on the table because the lighting caused such a glare on the acetate.  I will try to do a clearer one later once my camera battery is charged.
Here is the sketch and link:
Thanks for stopping by and I want you to have a great week!

What a fabulous shaker card! I love Edna as she's not got a perfect figure like most of us :D. Wonderful colouring and I love her sparkly wings :). Debra x
