Paper Sundaes Challenge and Craft Us Crazy

For this week's challenge at Paper Sundaes you can pick your own sundae toppings from a list of four - I've chosen pink and flowers for my card.  It's a shaker card - made for a swap on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to - and something I haven't made for ages.  I cut an oval frame using scalloped and plain die cuts and then put acetate behind the frame before attaching it to my stamped image with foam tape.  I've kept the background very plain because I want the focus to be on the shaker part of it.

I'd also like to enter the card in the 'anything goes' challenge currently running on Craft Us Crazy which is a new challenge blog that I've spotted tonight while I've been doing a bit of blog hopping!
