A new challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT is about to start with theme chosen by Wilma and that fabulous theme is WILD ANIMAL and why!..
Bears come to my mind, Bears of any kind, teddy, Barry, wild Salmon munching Bears, love them all..
My card has step by step today with cloud dies making rocks, such fun...and it is a shaker, even better..
So did loads of die cutting for the trees, found my beautiful Bear in my pictures folder and the shakers elements are from those packets when you buy furniture or shoes etc you get anti mold beads..
First time opening this pad too..gorgeous.
So I needed rocks and thought about this..cut a cloud die and cut the bottom off to give a flat bottom..
I inked it while flat...
Then screwed it up, maybe not as tight as I thought, then lightly inked it again so the ink was darker on the creases..
Put all the trees in place onto that lovely background paper...
First rocks onto the image..
Coming together, rocks in place and beads are floating inside the flat shaker..
Gave it a shake up and the beads look like foam from the water battering the rocks..
Isn't he wonderful, what a great Bear and all those beads settled down the bottom..
Just has to add this picture as the splash was huge!!
And there it is all finished, no sentiment yet, it is laying there but not sure where it is going...
So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..

Hi Chrissy, a beautiful scene, love the image and all the trees, you must have alot of patience,I never could sit and die cut ahead, drives me crazy :}
Yay for bears!!! A beautiful image Chrissy, and a wonderful design- the splash effect from the tiny beads (great recycling again- such a clever idea) really adds that extra wow factor.
This is a special design, I loved it as soon as I saw it. The shaker part adds that "something extra" we all love to see in a card, well done!
What a great card for our Nature Challenge! Love the bear surrounded by the trees and rocks; those papers are amazing! Great idea to use the cloud dies as rocks and up-cycling the "beads" as splashing water! So happy you shared with us at Path of Positivity! ~Katrina
