AAA Cards Challenge #139 Sketch + Shaker, with video

This fortnight our challenge is a Sketch plus the optional twist of a shaker.
Our sponsor for this game is Winnie and Walter.
I only have one set of W&W and so for my  frist card I used the Marianne Design Collectables Col1386. It's actually a "build your own giraffe" but I used the negative. I think you can tell what it is... Not all of them work, but the dino set does also.

I diecut the body and head from a panel and then stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink. It's from a Marianne design set EC0171

I then traced the opening onto the cardbase and onto a sheet of white craft foam, the same size as my panel.

Using the traced line I knew where to apply Distress Oxides Cracked pistachio.
Added double sided tape to the craft foam sheet and acetate and adhered it to the panel.
I've filled my shaker with green toned sequins and fun colored stars. I did start out picking out only the green ones, then I though Oh that blue is pretty too, so is the purple..and in they all went ;-). Closed my shaker by adhereing the cardbase on top.

The second card is done pretty much the same way, I just changed the shape of the shaker window into a heart to match with the Winnie & Walter sentiment from Big Hugs.
See the video on how I made it in about 15 minutes!.
