What's Shakin' Bacon?



I made this card last night, but didn't end up posting it in time for the Paper Smooches birthday challenge because I was too busy gabbing and crafting with my buddies JJ, Tessa, and Nina.  Luckily, it's Anything Goes week at SPARKS, so all is not lost!

I thought I would combine some of my favorite things:  shaker cards and bacon.  I mean, bacon makes everything better, right?

The great thing about crafting with friends is that you get to use their stuff, and this card is chock full of other people's stuff.  I used the Lawn Fawn card die along with a Reverse confetti tag to create the shaker itself.  The bacon was colored with copics, and there's a good helping of sequins in there too.

I created the sentiment using the Alphadot stamp set, and added a little frame of white cardstock to finish up the card.

OK, that's all for today.  I gotta get some extra sleep tonight since I was up waaaay too late with the girls yesterday!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  Avery Elle - White Cardstock; sorry I don't remember what patterned paper this was
Stamps:  Paper Smooches - Wake Up, Alphadot
Ink:  Memento - Tuxedo Black; Ranger - Antique Linen Distress Ink
Other:  Lawn Fawn - Stitched Journaling Card Die; Reverse Confetti - Tag Me Confetti Cuts; Avery Elle - Berry Blend and Kraft Blend Sequins; Tombow - Mono Adhesive; Adhesive Foam Squares (not sure which brand this was)
