PSBC August - Anything Goes (Optional 'Interactive')

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
(Shaker, Slider, Spinner, Pop-up, Wobble etc)

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

I made a simple Christmas shaker card, featuring the stamp 'Snow Dance', which I stamped on to watercolour paper, coloured using watercolour pencils. I carefully cut around the top of the image then added a piece of snowy sky background paper (from the 'Mystery Marbles' pad by Craft Sensations) behind it. I made the shaker part, but cutting a circle from the center of a piece of navy card using one of my circle Nesties, adding a piece of acetate behind the window. I then mounted it on to the background and image, using a double layer of 3D foam pads, sandwiching some powdery craft 'snow' in betwwen. I then added the whole thing to the front of a navy card blank.

It's always difficult to show a shaker card in a photograph, but here's one of it 'shaken up':

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
