Cupcake Card -- Not Square or Rectangle at International Art & Soul

Our theme this fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge is Not Square or Rectangle. Looking through my stash, I ran across a template for a cupcake card that my Mom made my years ago. I of course had to make it more complicated & create a shaker card.

The cupcake wrapper shape is cut from corrugated cardboard (Panera!) and covered with a metallic wrapping paper. The sentiment (Spellbinders) is underneath the thin acetate sheet I used to cover the shaker portion. I filled it with little plastic shpes & microbeads. On the outside, I added 3 plastic squiggly shapes that I've had in my stash forever.
