Happy Days Pile It On!

I have another Pile It On! card for you today! Our sponsor this week is Stamps and Smiles and our challenge is to use the colors blue, green and yellow (and of course combine with at least 1 other challenge). Here's my card:

In case you don't already know, Stamps and Smiles has a fun project challenge every Tuesday and this week they challenged us to make shaker cards. I haven't made a shaker in a LONG time, so I jumped on the inspiration!

I used the Your Next Stamp set Happy Days Mermaid and a sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp, which is being sponsored by Your Next Stamp! The sketch runs for 2 weeks starting today, so you have plenty of time to play! Here it is:

I stamped the mermaid, colored with Copics, added Stickles to her tail, then cut her out and popped her up with foam boosters. I cut 2 different papers for the background, then added the homemade rick-rack strip (cut with giant scallop scissors) over the seam. I used 2 layers of craft foam to make the shaker and added clear micro beads for the shakey part. I have to say I'm having a ton of fun just shaking the card around!

Lastly, this card also fits the Paper Blooms challenge - make a circle card. I hope you like it and TFL!
