Lawn Fawnatics 2 - Interactive Loads of Fun!

For the second Lawn Fawnatics Challenge the theme was interactive cards! I used the Lawn Fawn set "Loads of Fun". My interactive element is a water filled washing machine! 
 I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. I fussy cut the elements and used a circle die to cut the center of the washing machine. I colored another panel to go behind the washing machine with all of the clothes. 
 The assembly is much like a regular shaker but I used a small baggie filled with water, glitter and tiny glass beads (the kind with no hole). I was so excited to find that when you shake the card bubbles appear! I glued the bag shut and taped it too just to be safe and prevent any leaks. 
 I found some wood pattern paper for the floor, and the floral paper that reminded me of my grandmothers laundry room for the wall paper. I cut the background with a stitched rectangle die and cut a hole in it to match up to the front washing machine image. 
 I added the washing machine to the front with a piece of acetate for the window on top of the bag and background image. I stamped the sentiment on a green banner and adhered it along with the other  laundry elements to the front of the card to finish it off.
 Thank you so much for checking it out! 
Here is a video (hopefully, this is the fist time I have tried to add a video!) to see the water in action!
