A Honey Bee Shaker and a Christmas Card

 I had the silly idea to make a shaker card. I forgot how frustrated I get in the process:) I think most of the sequins are stuck on the side! 

I stamped and coloured the flowers and bee with Zg Markers.  I added some detail to the flowers with a Sepia marker and some Wink of Stellar to the bee's wings. 
I used some water-coloured behind the window. 
Stamps: Stampin Up Honey Bee; SU Forever Fern
Dies: Stampin Up Honey Bee; PB Sentiment Banner

I'm Sharing at The following challenges:-

I made the background by stamping the Christmas tree on to the EF and inking the raised bits with Altenew Ink , spritzing and then passed through the Big Shot.  The deer was stamped with grey ink and since it had lots of detail, I didn't colour in so my card could be monochromatic. 
Stamps: PB: Season's Marvel; Kaisercraft Deer & Sentiment
EF: Stampin Up
