Wonderful teacher

Hello! I am incredibly excited to be a guest designer for CAS on Sunday's challenge #107 - Use Glitter or Sequins. This challenge was a lot of fun to do. :)

I wanted to make a card for my son's kindergarten teacher. The end of the year is coming up and I like to give his teacher's a small gift for all the hard work that they put in throughout the year. I saw the apple stamp from SSS's Happy Days and the sentiment from HA's May 2016 Monthly kit and knew I wanted to put them together. I've seen lots of shaker cards that other people have done and they looked really awesome so I decide to try it. I am glad I did! I stamped the apple first and then die cut the cloud from a Sizzix fancy label die. I colored him in with copics and then added the little circles going up to the die cut. (I just realized I forgot to color in the stem, lol! I'll do that before I give it out.) I then laid the top panel on a blank piece of white cardstock and stamped my sentiment in the middle of where the die cut lay.
I used little foam squares to line the edges of my die cut and then put Doodlebug sequins in the center. I added foam squares along the rest of the panel and then laid my white cardstock with the sentiment on top and pushed down on all the foam to make sure that it adhered. I plan to put a gift card inside too. I really hope she gets a kick out of it :)

I am sharing this in two other challenges:
