Shakin' up the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees!

Hello friends! :)
Hope you are all doing well on this middle of the week "hump day"!

Today I have a fun shaker card to share with you:
So do you remember that fabulous Whimsy Stamps new release last week?
I have decided to take some stamp images from the Hedgehugs stamp set and highlight the other super adorable images from within this set that might not get noticed as much next to those adorable hedgehogs! :)

For this design, I've put together a fun shaker card!  I cut out a frame with the newly released Hand Stitched Rectangle dies using some of the sparkly papers from a past card kit!  (The shaker contents are also from a past Whimsy Stamps card kit.)   I used my distress inks to make the clouds and sunshine in the background.

All of the cute images you see including the tree stump that the bird is standing on was stamped, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out.  I used some foam tape on the lady bug and the bee along the side of the yellow frame.  I've also added some sparkle to the bee's wings and covered the center of the yellow flowers with glossy accents.

To cut the line of grass at the bottom, I cut it out using the Whimsy Stamps Pierced Border Trio dies and attached it to the yellow sparkle frame so that it sits flush with it.  The grass blades on that panel were stamped from the Sketched Elephants stamp set and then the greeting in the center was stamped using the newly released Handmade From Me stamp set.

Here's a closer look with the shaker contents:
It's that "Twitter-patted" time of year and I'm really looking forward to seeing Spring coming to life, so this is what has inspired my card for today.

I hope you've enjoyed my shaker card.
Thanks so much for dropping by!

P.S.  If you happen to notice an absence here on my blog or social media, I will not be around for a couple of weeks.  Just catching a short break and I'll be back again soon!! :)
