Happy Birthday to June?

Hi again crafty friends,
 My friend, June, is a June baby! So thanks to her Mama, it's easy to remember "June's birthday is in June!" I just got this super cute stamp set from Mama Elephant that I was so excited to get inky *Ü*

Here's the card:
 I luuuuuuv this little astrology set from Mama Elephant called Cosmic Stars! I used the cute little twins image which corresponds with Gemini *Ü* I colored them with Copics using the No-Line coloring technique.

Here's another peek:
 SQUEAL!*Ü* They are just too cuuuute!!!

BUT, I came across a teensy problem!?!? I checked to see what day in June, June's birthday is and it's June 22...which doesn't make her a Gemini...she's a CANCER! D'oh!

That's ok, you know me, and there are NO mistakes in card-making. This little snafu just gave me another opportunity to play with this fun, fun, fun stamp set again *Ü*

HERE's June's card:
 I colored in Mr. Crab Cancer with the No-Line Copic technique again. This time I took the opportunity to make a shaker for the front panel. I used a left-over pocket that I cut away from the baseball card sleeve from the pocket letter I created a while back. It was much easier to create the shaker this way *Ü* and it's not bulky.

Here's another peek:
ETA: I will be sharing a tute showing how to make this type of shaker later this week! *Ü*
and of the innies:
Yup, that's the Wonky Stitches die back! Hehehe... I just luv this die... *Ü*

I used this Mojo Monday sketch:
