Rain or Shine - Every Day is Special & Colorful with the UnstampaBelles

The UnstampaBelles July challenge is Every Day is Special with the optional twist of lots of color. You can make whatever you like without using any stamps.

I created a shaker with a window die-cut from my stash, some cardboard, patterned paper, and acetate. I left the middle bar when cutting the cardboard to create 2 sections inside the shaker, filled each portion with plastic confetti (Recollections). The doves are from the Birds of Earth & Sky die set from Cheery Lynn Designs, and the flamingo die came free with a magazine; both are cut from glittery papers. The banner is embossed/cut with a Spellbinders banner die & edged with yellow ink. The sentiment is a gold foil sticker (Elizabeth Craft). The base card is from my stash; it was a 4 x 12 piece that was folded in half, so I adapted it into this fold. Fun to give new life to old, forgotten projects!
