Sunflower Shaker - Lawn Fawnatics Interactive Card

Hi friends!
I am back to share with you my entry for the next Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Interactive Cards.

I will be quite honest, I am not very confident when it comes to coming with innovative ideas for interactive cards, but I thought this card turned out pretty good!

One of my all time favorite sets is Our Friendship Grows.  So, I thought it would be fun to create the centers of the sunflowers as little shaker elements.

I knew going into my design that I was going to have enough bulk with this card because of the foam tape on the card for it to be popped up enough for the shaker elements to move freely, so I decided to stamp my sunflowers directly onto a piece of the blue Watercolor Wishes pattern paper.  From there, I colored in my images with my Copics, and then I backed my pattern paper with a piece of white card stock for it to have enough stability.  I took my craft knife and carefully cut out the centers of my flowers.

I added my piece of acetate, and my foam tape and then added my brown seeds beads.  What is fun, is that it really looks like the inside texture of the sunflower. I then placed a piece of card stock to enclose my beads and shook a few times for my own pleasure :)

I wanted to add some highlights, so I just took my white gel pen and added right onto the acetate window a few white highlight dots.  For my sentiment I die cut the Scripty Hugs three times from yellow, light blue and brown card stocks and it really brings out the sentiment.  I added my shaker panel to a die cut scalloped frame, and then onto my A2 white card base.  

For final embellishment, I added some Wink of Stella shimmer to my flower pedals.   

I am happy to enter this one into the challenge :)

Thanks for stopping in!
