Beate's Weekend Sketch 38

Happy Monday! I was a big, lazy lump yesterday, but this morning I got up early and made this card for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge 38. I'm a little late, as usual, but hey, I'm on vacation! lol! I made this flower shaker the weekend before, but I had punched it out so crookedly, I threw it aside in disgust. Oh well, what the heck, perfection is over-rated, right?!
I still had scraps of Jersey Shore laying around that matched it, so it worked out pretty easily. Here's a close-up of the shaker part:

If you've never made a shaker before, Splitcoast has a good tutorial by Beate here. I used the Scallop Circle Punch, a clear transparency, the edges of the Stampin' Dimensionals sheet, and some discontinued SU beads. Very easy!

Guess I better go take a shower (ewwww!) before dh gets home from work! Nothing like stamping the day away in your jammies! Did anyone catch the series finale of The Wire last night? It was so good, but I'm so sad it's over (don't leave me McNulty, waaaaahhhh!) It has been one of the best series ever made, in my humble opinion, go rent the old seasons if you get a chance! Happy stamping!

Recipe Stamps: All Holidays, So Many Scallops (SAB). Cardstock: Brilliant Blue, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, and Jersey Shore DSP. Ink: Brilliant Blue. Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/8" Circle Punch, Slit Punch (to make scallop border), Dimensionals, retired beads, transparency film, Making Memories white brads.
