Easy breezy coneflowers

After the rain and the cold, spring has returned with 
beautiful sunshine, and my flowers looking so
fresh and 'smiling'.

 I spent the day outside making my card. This is a double
shaker card I constructed for fun. So two layers of 
cardstock and acetate with two different added
goodies inside.  This is also a 'see through'
card where I printed one image opposite,
coloured both the same and placed
back to back on the front and 
inside of my card.

My stamp is from Power Poppy and is called
"easy breezy coneflowers"  coloured with copic markers.
I have many of their stamps and they are all gorgeous.


Challenge:
Power Poppy....Moving On....something that moves. [Shaker cards move.]
The Flower Challenge.... anything goes with florals.

Hi Annie and thanks for the sweet comment of late. I just love your transparent shaker card (and the fact that you created it outdoors, while enjoying the beautiful fall weather). I have never made a successful shaker card. Somehow my inner bits always have static cling to the acetate, maybe it's a weather thing? Anyway, I do admire your card and lovely layering of purples. Hugs, Autumn

Double shaker card??? I can't even make a single shaker card.
Funny but I have never been a fan of cone flowers but I have to admit there are some lovely stamps around depicting them and the users have made some fabulous creations with them and this is one of those, love the purple agains the white.
So I am going to ignore the "spent the day outside" and tell you I spent the day at Grandson's Harvest Festival concert, going to the Butcher and making onion soup and chilli, bet you are envious about that!
