Gerda,
What a super fun birthday card!
Reminds me of a little soda
shop I used to go to as a teenager
Chocolate shakes, fries and a jukebox...
oh those were the days!
Awesome colors on your card and I really line the
diagonal lines of the paper.
The musical notes and sequins are the perfect
finishing touches.

Nancy,

I love this adorable shaker easel card.
The little scarecrow is just so sweet. All your
inking is beautiful. Terrific idea
to use a border punch to make the leaves for the shaker.
I bet the leaves falling are awesome. Even though I
am not ready for fall this card could change my
mind with all it's cuteness.
