Noah's Ark

When I first saw this image I immediately thought of a baby card. I was originally going to make it a gender neutral card but it has turned out to be for a baby boy (unless you want to give a blue card to a girl - which is perfectly fine I guess)!
I'm pretty happy with my first attempt at a shaker card :-)

I am entering this card in:
1. Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #252 - Shake it up! (make a shaker style card);
2. Word Art Wednesday #113 - Anything Goes;
3. Twist of Faith card challenges #70 - New beginnings - Anything Goes (I took this as a baby beginning it's life and potentially their lifetime walk with God); and
4. Alphabet Challenge - X for Xtraordinary (made a shaker card which I think is xtraordinary!)

Some more pictures of my card:
There was one sequin that got "stuck" to the top of the boat...I still can't get it down!

Showing the sequins and glitter in the shaker. I also added Distress Stickles to the Ark
