July 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop - sending a smile

I decided to make a shaker card for my cousin who loves interactive cards!  I die cut a Beautiful Blooms flower out of Amy Butler Lotus patterned paper and then added some acetate for the window.  I punched a bunch of small circles with a hole punch from Summer Sunrise, Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet and the Amy Butler Lotus patterned paper.
I added a Dark chocolate hole punched cirlce and then a gold gem to the centre of the flower.  A banner from Summer Sunrise and an Everyday Button Bits sentiment complete the card.
Shaker cards are so much fun - I will definitely be making more of them in the future!

Paper: Staples 110lb white; PTI Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise; Amy Butler Lotus patterned paper.
Ink: Fresh Tuscan Olive
Stamps: PTI Everyday Button Bits
Misc: PTI Beautiful Blooms die, gold gem, hole punch, foam dots
