This month I'm bringing back an oldie but goodie......SHAKER
cards!  I know you remember them whether you use foam board, foam mounting tape or washi tape for faux shakers.  Next is Birdcages and this one has a saying that I really like so without further ado here are my shakers for this stamp set.  Also a silent video showing the shakers in action.  Hope I uploaded the video properly so it runs for you to see my shakers.
On day 3 of our hop I will have a silent movie showing the first three stamp sets in action.  Stop by An'Jenic blog to see her birdcages.

Here's the Design Team:
