Shake It Up, It's Sunday

Hey all,
Lets get shaky this Sunny Sunday!
It's time for a new challenge over at 
& this week we want you to make a shaker card!
Here's mine

The image I have used is Rocking Horse from The Crafty Pad Designs
Such a cute image don't you agree?
The layout is from my mind eye!
I coloured up the image with Promarkers & cut out with a scalloped circle nestie.
I used two design papers from my stash! These are digital papers from
Cardmaking Downloads,
sorry I don't have the links for them at this time but if I find them soon I'll add them in!

To make my shaker section I cut a frame out of my design paper using 
the same size scalloped circle nestie with a smaller one inside.
I also cut out a scalloped circle of acetate. 
I stuck the acetate to the frame & then added foam spots all the way around.
Next I added the little heart confetti to the frame then stuck the image
 face down onto the frame.
I find it helps to run a glue stick over the foam dots as this gives you a little bit of 
leeway to get everything in just the right place!

The sentiment circle is also from The Crafty Pad Designs
I cut it out with an inverted scalloped circle & coloured it with Promarkers 
then matted onto a scalloped circle of DP

I added 3 buttons to the tabs at the top, just to finish off my card.
I also added a little teddy charm tied in a ribbon bow.
Sorry I didn't get a close up pic of that!
