A Cup of Tea Shaker Card

Day 5...Be sure to stop on over to the Spring Coffee Lover's BlogHop and check out all the great projects and cards...they are filled with inspiration...join in the fun...you have until the 25th to submit as many cards as you want that are Spring themed and include coffee, tea or hot chocolate. 

This card was created using the Heart2Heart Challenge for "Retirement".  The entire card was created using the retired PaperPak CTMH "Taste of Summer" design papers, except for the tag with sentiment.  The Yellow background was a scrap that was the negative left over from a sun die-cut.  The selection of this scrap served as a great Shaker cut out which was adhered to another design paper.  The cup and saucer were cut in Cricut Design Space using other design papers in PaperPak.  


Twine was tied from the sentiment Tag to the Coffee Cup to represent a tea bag.  A butterfly was added for an embellishment.  Below is a picture of the Shaker with all the beautiful sequins.
