shaken not stirred

today i'm so excited to share this card i made for two challenges! 
the latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is all about making a project with elements off of the edge! sweet!!

and speaking of sweet! i also made this card for the most current challenge over at the sweet stamp shop! which is to make a project with black, white and one other color!

i used two different sweet shop stamp sets - furry friends forever and gnomies (for the little grass!) but i also used their dies to make the banner! both the banner and the little raccoon are popped up for dimension! of course, the banner (and part of the little guy's tail) are living on the edge! well, off of the edge! :)

but my favorite part of this card is that it's a shaker card!! i die cut some acetate into a circle and then sewed along most of the circle. then i added my little punched out circles and finished sewing the circle! i LOVE when i get to use my sewing machine on paper crafts! it's sort of in need of repair (*cough cough* little mann hands *cough cough* messing with my tension *cough cough*)! :) ha ha!

but it was actually cooperating with me yesterday, so i was happy! just like this card! 
hope it made you smile!
