Just for the SHAKE of it! Lets play a game!

Ok, I am here to play on the playground!  Who is ready for a game?  
Here are three things that all have something in common.  
Guess what it is and you will guess the card I made!




Did you guess it????

You ______ all these things...




So I made me a......


  And this sentiment is perfect for it.  Ok, I am a bad girl. I stole this sentiment stamp out of the items I had for sale!! (Unity Stamp set- Itty Bitty just for the SHAKE of it )  See, you sort to downsize and you fall in love with the stuff all over again!!

So.... while I was waiting for my turn on the swings (time to play with paper) I was inspired by a few of the cards Patti made the last few months.  Here is how I CASED her ideas. (dont tell the teacher I copied)
  • she recently has made a few shaker cards.  
  • The wonderful stitched die I used for the center was because I feel in love with how she used them on her cards and got some for myself.  (ok, caught me, I have my hand in the cookie jar :)  

Here are a few details to zoom in on.  The antenna on the butterfly are actually drawn on the inside of the acetate.  The green gems are on the outside and the butterfly is floating gently inside.   The retired CTMH paper already had the perfect color dots on it.  The butter fly was punched from the same CTMH paper, but a place where swirl designs were just waiting to be discovered and transformed (morphed) into art.

 And just one more quick look.  The sentiment is not suck there like every other sentiment.  No it is curved up and out just like a real banner.  I am very excited about this card and I hope you are too.

 Thanks for picking me to play on your team here at the playground.  It has been a blast.  Now lets see, how many challenges I can find to enter this one into!  Thanks for hoppin by and have a great big INKYFINGERS day!

How I was inspired:
