You're a Star

Made a shaker friend for Sally, a dear friend who was here for me I needed her.  Thanks Sally xxx
There's quite a bit of recycling on this card, inspired by some fab entries to a recent LIM challenge:  the acetate is from Spellbinders packaging, the gold ribbon has Fortnum & Mason printed on it (I've used it wrong side out!).  The background behind the star has more stars embossed on it and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, as is the card candi that fills the shaker.  No stamping on today's card!
I am entering my card for:
Simon Says Wednesday - shake it
Simon Says Monday - start from scratch (made my shaker aperture, hope this counts)

Cute Card Thursday - reach for the stars
Just Add Ink - shakers
Crafty Catz - stars and/or stripes


  1. Sally will love this! Great shaker! Great design! Thank you for sharing your card with us for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. ~Michelle

  2. I'm sure your friend Sally will appreciate the time and love that has gone into your card Anne. I especially love that you have up-cycled using packaging pieces, great idea! :)
    I really like the gold and white color palette, everything coordinates together beautifully. Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink this week, Louise xo

  6. Beautiful shaker card, Anne! I love those candy dots. Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Shake It!

  7. I love the colour scheme, the embossed star background, and your use of card candi for your shaker, Anne. The sentiment rectangle reminds me of a wrapped chocolate bar. :) Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

  8. I love the way you've included a heap of upcycled elements in your card. It's fabulous. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink.

  9. Wonderful card, Anne. I really love that you have used so many eco friendly items on your card.
