Panda Paul Shaker Card

The theme this week at Stamp Fairy is sh-sh-sh-shaker cards!!! (I was trying there to give the impression of some maracas being shaken???!!!)  Ok, moving swiftly on ... Here's my little shaker card featuring Panda Paul and Pauline in love.  My shaker elements are little punched hearts in pink, but I notice some of the other girls on the team have used tiny seed beads which is a great idea.  I've found glitter is not so great, as static on the acetate seems to make it 'stick' to the front.  

As the design is quite thick with the shaker box, I didn't add any further thickness with embelishments other than some lovely papers and a little nestie frame (couldn't resist a nestie).  However, now that I've finished it, I'm a bit worried that I left it a bit too simple?  What do you think?

By the way, if any of you are nervous about creating a shaker card, or don't have a pre-made shaker box, the pop over to the Stamp Fairy tutorials as there is a little help over there on how to make your own shaker box card.

I look forward to seeing your shaker card creations on the Stamp Fairy challenge blog, and please pop over to see the wonderful creations by the other members of the design team. 

I've been inspired by the following:
Have fun with your sh-sh-sh-shakin' !!!

Gorgeous card Netty :-) the image is adorable and I do love shakers :-)
I find a brill stuff to pop in a shaker is diamond dust ,, it's quite heavy small glass particles and make a lovely sound too when you sh sh shake, and it doesn't stick to the acetate :-)

thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge :-)
