AAA Cards challenge - Shaker cards

The AAA Cards challenge for this week is to create a shaker style card.
 This is so not a technique that I usually try, but can I say I had fun! Hope you will play along too. Plus there is a very nice prize available.
 For my card, I went with a brand new set of dies from Spellbinders.  When I saw these cute clouds and the sun dies, I knew I had to have them.  Not to mention there is a piece that allows you to emboss a design or not.  The sentiment is from Printworks.
 I knew that a cut out cloud would be the perfect start to my shaker card.  I only wish I had put more little sequins in it, but that is part of the learning as you go kind of thing.
 Notice that I also just embossed one of the clouds with the little pattern piece in it.  
And for a photo...
We visited a park this week with the best Koi pond.  I could take tons of pictures of these beauties.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
