A Hedgehog Flower Shaker Card

I thought I'd make a shaker card, but this time, instead of just tiny beads, I punched out some tiny flowers to put inside the shaker window as well. (Note to self. Make sure the glue has dried before you shake the card)I've used Penny Black stamp, 'Hedgehog Bouquet', which I've only had a few weeks and this is the first time I've used it. Coloured the image with Promaker pens.
All the paper and the sentiment is Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose, very pretty, this is the first time I've used it. I made the flowers using two Woodware punches and added some Stickles Glitter. The little heart?? First, I cleaned an empty glue tube, flatten it out, embossed it using a cuttlebug folder and cut out the heart shape with a Sizzix die-cut. (Run it through my BigShot. See WOYWW Post and before picture here) I still think it needs something else. A a little Stickeroo maybe?
Now then, I was very good and wrote down some challenges, which I had in mind when I made this card, one was use something recycled and another was to use acetate. I had a little note book and everything, because I knew I'd lose a list, but of course I've mislaid the notebook, and forgotten the challenges. (Typical me)Meanwhile, (back at the ranch) I've been playing 'out the back' on blogger, where all the business goes on, and I had no idea there was a comment moderator thingiemejig, and there were a few comments waiting there to be published, they were comments made this month but on older posts. Now, I think I must have pressed a button somewhere, after I had all that Chinese spam, they always go back to old posts and add loads of comments. It takes an age to delete them, and what's the point, I can't read Chinese! But it's nice to know you can stop people commenting on old posts if you want to! (Update: I've now found the comment regulator for older post comments where you can delete with one tick!)
New Followers! (Yay!) which is always nice! Both out the back and in the dark. Ali Sherman, no link, but is that Craftywelshbit?
