MAGICAL MONDAY CHALLENGE CARD - Ribbon & Bow, Eldon with Flower

Eldon with Flower

Below is what it looks like when you shake the beads around.
This week I needed to make a card for a special young man. So I made this challenge card for There's Magic in the Air. The image is totally free and totally adorable! The challenge calls for the use of Eldon with Flower and use some ribbon and a bow. I followed Curt's lead and gave him a bow tie and attached the ribbon to the planter. I've been wanting to make another shaker card ever since I saw Curt's shaker cards. So I copied the image on to a piece of clear acetate and colored it with Dixon overhead projection markers (that I found at the dollar store) I used Spellbinders Labels 8 Nestabilities
to cut a window into card stock from DCWV THE SWEET STACK . I used the dimensional foam to separate the acetate from the card stock , added a piece of torn green vellum from Paper and More and placed two colors of green seed beads into the card for the shaker element. This was fun to make and I hope my special young man will like it, I know I do. Thanks for looking. ~Diane
