Patch and Puss shaker card

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are having a great weekend.

The lovely Evelin was our hostess for the evening at cardmaking club on Thursday and we made shaker cards.

I had printed several papers from the Perfect Pair collection by Nitwit onto 250gsm card stock so I used a scalloped circle die to cut an aperture in one of them. I taped a square of acetate behind this and then stamped on one of the Tiny Phrases greetings by Woodware with Black Memento ink.

Next I layered up a 7x7" card with a couple more of the Nitwit papers and cut flowers from a third design to use as embellishments.

The image behind is from one of the retired Lili of the Valley Art Pads called Jack, Patch & Puss. After putting a double layer of foam tape all the way around the image I added sequins from my stash and some pink Stix2 beads into the 'well' before placing the acetate frame over the top.

I started on a second card after our cake interval (chocolate, yummy) but I didn't get to finish it so I'll show you that one later in the week after it's completed.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
