MID-WAY REMINDER FOR HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #186 ~ "MAKE IT MASCULINE"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! In keeping with our theme of our "Make It Masculine" Challenge, I've used this adorable image to make a shaker card. 

   


Unlike traditional shaker cards, I used a plastic Shake It Pouch from Impression Obsession to make my shaker which allowed me to mount it to the inside of my card and punch a hole through the card front to have it peek through.

Here's a view from the inside of the card. I really like having the shaker on the inside as the card is less "top heavy" plus you have the added benefit of framing the shaker two ways (which is always a fun thing to do).

The main cardstock is from Recollections, the gold is from The Paper Temptress, the green is from the SU! Brights collection and the DP is from K & Co. "Sea Glass" paper pack. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and the peel offs and seed beads were from my stash. Now on to the challenge information:

Oh how cute! Love the little beads! Definitely more masculine than sequins. I think the little guys in the boat would agree!
