All-Star Shaker

Hi friends,
My youngest son recently had a birthday. I was a bit pressed for time, so I thought that I would buy him a card since I didn't really think it mattered to him---> it's what's on the INSIDE that counts, right???
So he opened his card & gasped, "You didn't make me a birthday card?"...cue another moment to add to the Mommie Dearest novel he'll write later... I felt bad :( I decided to make him one.

Here it is:
I made a fun shaker from the star shape. The background was embossed with the CB Tiny Bubbles embossing folder to mimic the feel of a basketball. Luv it! Gotta keep that in the bat files for later.

Here's a closer peek:
I have always luuuuved shaker cards, so I'm glad they're the new hit thing!

Here's a peek of the innies:
I used this week's MFT sketch #223:
I haven't played in any challenges in a while, so I'll play along with the following:
JUGS: Shaker card
Sister Act Card Challenge: Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks: Die Cuts
DL.Art: Use orange
Southern Girls Challenge: Starry Starry night- use stars

Ok, so I hope all is forgiven...and after all of this, I hope I don't find this card under the bed or in the the laundry hamper. But I have a feeling... wink...

Thanks so much for peeking today!
