Prettie Shakie Wednesday

Today I have a 2fer!! Since I am on vacation and scheduling these blog posts I was able to combine today's Prettie Wednesday challenge with the Bonus Sketch #4 from Page Plans - cool!! I just so happened that today's sketch was perfect for Danielle's challenge - to make a shaker card. I love shaker cards, they are so much fun to make and receive!

I used some fun, tropical paper from Basic Grey's Gypsy line. I thought it was summery and tropical so I decided to use the palm tree image from Soakin' Up the Sun. I used a couple of different print papers on this one, but I think it all works, right? The 2 strips are from a sheet of strips - it looks better IRL, you can see the break in the patterns better.

The sentiment is from Bugs and Fishes. It got me thinking about the upcoming Stamping Cruise - I cannot wait!! :) I love the cute little flower brads!

Thanks for checking in!! We'll be home tomorrow - with lots of laundry! :)

Cardstock: White (GP), Patterned Paper: Basic Gray Gypsy line, Stamps: Soakin' Up the Sun, Bugs and Fishes, Inks: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Accessories: Flower brads (Queen & Co.), Acetate, Nestabilities, Ribbon (American Crafts), Word Window punch, sand, Dimensionals
