Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Shake It

Before I get to my card, I like to share a pic my husband took the other day.  We live in a very rural area, so we have lots of deer.  But this one decided to bed down in our front yard right next to the driveway.  At first we thought maybe it was hurt since it laid there for so long, but it eventually got up and left.  We see them once in a while bedded down in the tall grass, but never on the lawn.  It's a little blurry, since he took it through the window, but you get the idea.

My dad's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, so I pulled out the Art Impressions stamp set called Lawn Ranger.  He just got a new riding lawn mower, so I thought this would be a perfect fit.  Since the theme this week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Shake It  I thought I would pull out my shaker dies that I got from Papertrey Ink.  They were part of a kit from Betsy Veldman.  The sunburst in the corner was also from the kit and the sentiment was computer generated. The paper was from the Basic Grey 6x6 pack called Shine On.  I used green sequins & glitter for the shaker.

Shaker cards are always fun and the design team at Simon Says Stamp has some really great creations for inspiration.  I haven't had a chance to check out all cards entered in the challenge, but looking forward to see what everyone comes up with.  Thanks for stopping by.
