Pilin' On the Scraps

The themes this month at Pile It On are Lots of Layers and/or Use Your Scraps. You can choose one or both themes, and you may enter the challenge as many times you like, as long as you are inspired by at least one other Challenge theme. We're sponsored by Angie's Digital Stamps, and I used her At the Beach digi stamp. I only used scraps from my offcut box to make this shaker card.

The mason jar & umbrella dies are from Elizabeth Craft Designs; I bought it from Elizabeth herself at the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo in Mesa, Arizona, last September, with the intention of using it to make a shaker card. So glad I finally got around to it! I filled the shaker with blue microbeads, green & blue star sequins, and glass beads. I heat-embossed the sentiment (Lili of the Valley) in blue onto the towel part of the image. I had inked the gradient blue background a long time ago, and it ended up in my stash, just waiting for the perfect project!
