Sweet Summer Shaker

I just discovered the challenge blog Festive Friday: they offer fun biweekly inspiration lists based on fun holidays & celebrations. Along with the current Shaker Card challenge at Daring Cardmakers, I pulled out stuff from popsicle-themed items from my stash & made this summery card.

The big sunny sun is the tag from a baby gift from my parents... I couldn't bear to throw it away, but I figured I could compromise and recycle it! I filled the shaker with tiny fruits from Queen and Company & used some of the them for the corners; the popsicle shaker set is also from the same company.

The popsicles were cut from 3 papers with a Spellbinders die; I added glitter to the tops & copper ink to the stick part.  The sentiment is die-cut from a scrap of paper. The front DP is from Simple Stories; for the base card, I used a long-saved paper from Doodlebug Designs; I'm trying to celebrate my paper collection instead of hoarding it!
