Thinking of You

Morning all.
I always fall in love with a new technique then I use it a lot it all my creations.  This time I have fallen in love with shaker cards.  I seem to have made a few just lately but they add such a fun element to your cards.
I have made a little star shaker on this card using the Star Framelit Dies from Stampin Up.

The papers I have used are from Authentique called Abroad and the little sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.

This card is just to let my parents know that I am thinking about them.  As I find it hard sometimes been in another country and I do miss them.

This card is for a couple of challenges:
I was inspired by the wood grain on the little truck and the colours.
