Art Impressions Sparkle and Shine Seahorse!

Hello Ai fans!

There's a challenge going on over at Art Impressions right now that I'm pretty sure is the most perfect challenge EVER for me!!

Sparkle and Shine!!

I decided to make a shaker card using one of the Ai Freebies.

I used the piece that was cut out of the front to place behind the seahorse.
Next I added some Stickles to the coral and I tried something new.  I didn't wait for it to dry.  I added my beads and gave it a shake.  I wanted to have sparkle all over my card. Some of them stuck and some still shake when you jiggle the card.
I used Antique Frame - Penny Black Die for the frame and the circles were cut using Frantic Stamper Precision Die - Bubble Oval and Frantic Stamper Precision Die - Coral And Seaweed Oval.  The darker purple right behind the sea horse in the negative area that was cut out of the coral frame.  I turned it upside down so some coral would hang down behind him.  Then I cut and "popped up" the front frame with the bubble oval and some foam tape.  I used some acetate from packaging to form the front of the shaker so the beads wouldn't fall out.

I never seem to be able to get glitter to photograph well but in person it's very pretty.  There's also some Wink of Stella on the seahorse.
