HLS CASE the Designer April Challenge

I can't believe how quickly March flew in and out of here like a breeze! It's already time for the Happy Little Stampers CASE the Designer Challenge. This month is the ever talented Joyce Mehrberg's turn to host and just look at her stunning card!

Beautiful, I know!!

Here's the card I made, based on her design:

I started by stamping the flower images from Altenew's Peony Bouquet onto my card panel. I then ran it through my die cutting machine using Blueprints #27 window panel. I then selectively colored just the framed part of the card stock using copics. I then adhered the frame to a piece of acetate and cut some fun foam using the same frame die to make the shaker part of the card. I then stamped the script background to the top windows only, using HLS Thinking Of You set. I heat embossed the large Thinking of You stamp in black so it would show up in the bottom window. I then stamped a couple of butterflies and the bee image from PTI's Flower Favorites and popped them up using pop dots.

I scattered some black, white and clear sequins into the bottom part of the window and carefully layered my framed window on top, being careful to line it up before giving it a good press to seal the sequins in.

Be sure to stop by the Happy Little Stampers blog to check out all the wonderful cards made by the design team and then join in on the fun!
You could be the winner of a $30 Gift Certificate to Happy Little Stampers!

Oh, Birgit--this is stunning. I love how you made frames and colored them in. It is such a unique approach. And, the shaker--I almost never make shakers because they are so much work and mine never shake properly--I am so impressed that you were able to add a functioning shaker to your card. Thanks so much for CASing me-it's such a treat for me to see.
