Lions, Tigers, Bears, Oh MY! New challenge #310

Hello Ai fans!

What a fun day today is!
 We have our Cloudy with a Chance...challenge winner,
we have a new challenge and best of all...we got a double dose of Crystal!
She was our daily post this morning (be sure to check that out!) 
and now she has a wonderful feature 
for our new Lions, Tigers, Bears, Oh MY! challenge.
Enjoy her adorable animal shaker card and tutorial.

Hi Ai fans! It's time for a new challenge Lions, Tigers, Bears Oh My! The first stamp set that came to mind was this Baby Critters stamp set. I have made so many cards with this stamp set I think it is my favorite stamp set of Art Impressions. So for this challenge I made a shaker card. 

I started with the second largest double stitched rectangle and die cut a rectangle out of white card stock. 

I then die cut three circles out of that same rectangle. 

 I die cut a 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" double stitched rectangle out of some purple shimmer card stock. 

I added acetate to the back side of the white card stock. I used foam tape around all of the circles so I could add different colors of sequins to each circle. 

I stamped the lion with Memento black ink, colored the lion in with alcohol markers and die cut him out with the coordinating die. I stamped the sentiment "I'm Wild about you" with Versafine black ink. 

I added the lion to the bottom left corner. Matted the sentiment onto some purple card stock. To finish off the card I added some sequins on to the front of the card. 

Happy stamping! 

And now, drum roll please...
The winner of our last challenge is Debbie H.!
