{ Welcome to my garden–flowers, fruits, veggies }

**This is my second post for the day. Reverse Confetti SFYTT is below.**

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Welcome to my garden!

Our challenge starts today, May 1, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, May 7, at 10 PM.

Create a new project using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between May 1-7. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Here is my card.

Sweet beautiful you by Daniela Dobson

Shaker cards are popular again. Have you seen Impressions Obsession Shake It Pouches? If you haven’t you need to go and take a look. We have different sizes and shapes, ready to be filled. They are self-adhesive. Just stamp your image, place your inclusions on top, peel the backing off and stick them down. Not only that, we have shaker overlays, pre cut to whatever shape you need for your card.
I filled mine with sequins and beads.

For the inside image I used an older stamp that I had called Strawberry Trees. Perfect for our challenge today. I colored the strawberries with watercolor crayons. To cover the outside of my large shake it pouch, I used Circle Shaker Frame Die. This die fits both sizes of circle pouches.
I tied twine around the shaker.

For the sentiment, I die cut the banner from Banners & Tails and stamped the sentiment from Warm Fuzzies Sentiments. I stamped some stripes at the bottom from Basic Borders 2 stamp set. It looks like washi tape. There is another set called Basic Borders 1 that I used here and here.  Not sure if you can tell that I stamped the white background with CAC Screen. I wanted it just barely there.

That is all from me. Make sure you check out what the rest of our DT created.

I hope you play along.
