Hello, twins

A friend of mine asked for a baby card for twins, so I thought I'd join in with both Lawnscaping's Clean and Simple challenge, and Virginia's View Shaker card challenge.  Now, I've never made a shaker card before today.  Never. So it was a bit of a steep learning curve, and I must say I'm not very inclined to make another one!  However, I am happy with the finished product. 
On the background, I used the technique of using Versamark to create shadows on a panel of solid ink (Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Soft Pool), which I learned in the recent Online Card Class.  I created a stencil to apply the Versamark using some Lawn Fawn cloud dies.   All the stamps are also Lawn Fawn - from "Plus One" and also "Hello Baby".  I had to create an extra bundle for the stork to carry with some creative masking (I've done this a number of times before with this stamp).  The window was cut with a Stitched Circle die from Lil' Inker Designs. 
 Thanks for visiting :)
