Card Challenge Day 20 - Let's Make Some Noise

We were to put something on our cards that when you shake them they make noise. I had no idea what I was going to do! Then I saw the little round container that my cricut blades come in and I thought pillows - why I thought that is beyond me. I cut them in half and away I went. I have a friend that has just moved into a new house and I needed to make her and her family a card so I thought how can I incorporate pillows into a card and this is what I came up with. The pillows have the crystal sprinkles inside them and MAKE A NOISE when you shake the card. VOILA!Those who have the Cricut and would like the cut files for the furniture can download them below:
The SVG file can be downloaded here.
