Every Day Is A Pig Day

Hello.  Welcome.  It seems shaker cards are the current thing.  I love these.  Such  fun.  Give a little shake.  Just one more.  Hee hee.   I always have trouble getting the shaky stuff right.  Too big, too small, not enough, too much!!  I think I got it this time though!!

I cut a square panel from Basic Grey Indian Summer paper using Simon Says Stamp Stitched dies.  I stamped the pig from Simon Says Stamp Party Animal set and embossed with black powder.  I coloured the pig with watercolour pencils and also added some more green to the bottom of the card.  I carefully cut around the inside of the balloon embossed line.  I used a piece of packaging material for my window and mounted the square panel on a piece of foam, after I had cut a hole for the balloon.  I filled the balloon with bedazzle beads, and lined it up on my base card so there is a flower showing.   I cut some matching flowers and added them around the edge of the front panel, some gold sequins, and a sentiment from the party animal set.
