hello...

Hey there... our sunny weather came back... YAY!!!  Have a shaker card to share with you.  I didn't set out to make a shaker card, but once I got started on my card making one just seemed the way to go.  This card is for the following challenges:  AEI{heart}U challenge:  botanicals, Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: botanicals and ColourQ.
 
Since two of the challenges have to do with flowers I decided to pull out my never been used before Memory Box window die and create a little flower filled window scene.  I die cut some flowers and the leafy branches and stamped them with the various ColourQ colors.  A piece of clear cardstock was trimmed to fit the back of the window and attached along with many tiny squares of foam dimensionals.  Once that was done I layered the leafy branches and the flowers on the window.  I then added sequins in colors that are fairly close to the ColourQ colors and sealed up the back.  The sentiment was stamped and the piece was run through my Big Shot in the dotted swiss embossing folder and then adhere to my card base.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Avery Elle; Dies:  Avery Elle & Memory Box; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Sequins:  Lawn Fawn and Ellen Hutson
