Birdbrain's Egg-citing Shaker

For my card today I made the sketch into a shaker card using the "From the Heart Stamps" digi called Be Happy Birdbrain.   I printed, colored, and fussy cut him without his legs or the background.  I stamped and colored the Penny Black Egg border (5 EGGS) and fussy cut each egg as well. The back of the shaker was sponged using Tim Holtz distress inks and a cloud template.  I cut several circle layers using two sizes of circles and glued them over the card front.   One layer was cut using a Spellbinders  Lacey Circle die to make it into a flower.   A circle was cut from the card front and the layer of fun foam to make a deeper area for the shaker.  Birdbrain is glued into the scene and everything else can shake around. The sentiment is computer generated.
