Shake it up!

Remember that oldie but goodie song from The Cars - "Shake it up!" ?
When I saw some of this week's challenge theme,
this tune stuck in my head.  Thus, it was the idea behind this fun summer card.

I started with a gate-fold card in black
and added copper metallic mats.
The diner from Mickey and Friends is the main image,
with a cool shake and scrumptious burger from Carousel and Block Party.

The ticket stub is on a hand-made "wobble" for motion,
and the shake and burger are popped for dimension.

The inside image is computer generated and mimics
the old fashioned malt shop of years gone by.

An excerpt from the Cars, "Shake It Up" is on the inside flap,
while the sentiment, "When was the last time you did something for the first time?"
is on the bottom.

When this is folded up, the diner fits behind the milkshade
to help hold this card closed.
This could be used for a birthday, encouragement,
or just because card.

I will be entering this in the following challenges for this week:

Hope you liked it!
