TMS and Zap Pow!

Good Tuesday morning!
Welcome back!  I hope you are ready for a another fun sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.
We have a easy sketch this week, tons of possibilities with this one!
Our terrific sponsor this week is Zap PowOwners Lizzie and Cassandra have created a store of digital stamps that are cheeky, fun and quite whimsical images and are great to work with.
The winner this week will get to choose 3 fun Zap Pow images!
Are you ready to play?
Here is this weeks sketch...
I used Olive You to create my very first shaker card.  I've always loved the look/idea of shaker cards, I just never made one until now.  I'm happy with the end results, still need a little practice, but over all, not bad for a first try!  
This is going to be an anniversary card for my hubby.  I know, not very romantic!  When I saw this image I knew immediately I wanted to use it for his anniversary card. Did you know that when you mouth the words olive juice it looks like I love you!  Yea, it does and yes, my husband fooled me by silently mouthing them to me.  I know, what an odd sense of humor! Just one of the things I love about him! 
So that is why I wanted to use the olives for our anniversary.  
I used the Spellbinders A2 matting basics dies to cut out a frame from green card stock.  I adhered some acetate to the frame then added foam tape completely around the frame.  I used sequin, heart punches and a couple Happy Anniversary confetti pieces inside the "window".  Added some doodling to the frame.  The olives are colored with Prismacolor pencils then popped up with more foam tape.  I wanted to added a little more interest to the polka dot background so I randomly added some doodled hearts.  A strip of washi tape was used as accent.  In real life the background is more purple then blue.  
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Simple sketch, so many awesome ideas, go check them out, then get busy playing!
