Simon Says Challenge - Move It !

Wow, what an exciting and busy week that was ! We had a fantastic response to our blog hop, thank you to everyone who played along with us. The winners of the grand prize and all our blog candies will be announced later.

This week our challenge is called "Move It". We want to see movement in your creations. Hop over to the challenge blog for a full explanation and a jiggy little song to get you in the mood !!

I decided to make a shaker card. I haven't made one of these before and I really enjoyed it. I followed a tutorial that is in the new Magnolia Ink magazine and its really easy.

The "shaker" part is made from the reel of a used roll of DST (luckily I had very little tape left on my reel so I pulled it all off !!). I covered the cardboard reel with walnut stain distress ink.

The image is Mermaid Emma by CC Designs and she has been coloured with ProMarkers and Waterfall Stickles.

The DP's on the reel are My Minds Eye.

The DP on the card itself I think are by K and Co.

Inside the shaker I added some Beadazzles which are micro beads mixed with glitter, some half pearls in green and blue and also some blue and clear dew drops.

The netting at the bottom and the string of pearl shells were from my local haberdashery shop. I just knew they would come in for mermaid cards when I saw it !!

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

The flowers are from my stash.

Most of the items I used are from the Simon Says Stamp Store and I have linked them.

There is a fantastic prize of a $25 P&P free shopping spree for the winner !

Yet again the rest of the DT have made some amazing cards for your inspiration so please hop over and go and have a look and leave them some lovely comments.

We look forward to seeing what you come up with !
