So for today's new challenge this week, the theme is:
"Happy Birthday"

I never have enough birthday cards and it'a always great to make extra to have on hand when you need one to send out!  I wanted to do something a bit different for this, so I've decided to make a fun birthday shaker card today:
I have used the really fun Sweet Stamps Candle Wish Duo 917 stamp set for my creation.
I took my markers to color the candle stamp in different colors along the bottom border of the panel shaker card panel.  I added a touch of glitter to the flames to give it a bit of a sparkle!

I then matched up the Pumpkin Pie color of the candle and used some coordinating papers to add a strip above the candles and then tied some gold twine around the front.  I made the shaker portion using some stitched circle dies and scallop circle punch for the frames.  I put some fun sequins with different colors and star shapes inside of it along with some fun type confetti called Rox.  The top shaker card base was die cut with a stitched rectangle die and popped up over an embossed star panel that I distressed the edges of.  The sentiment was stamped on the inside of the shaker while assembling it.  Such a fun card to make!

Here's a closer look at the shaker:
You can perhaps get a better view of the clear confetti Rox inside there as well.
I've used a pre-made foam circle frame for my shaker which made this come together very easily.

I hope you are able to play along this week!  Such an easy challenge too!
Be sure to check out the challenge as well as the rest of the design team inspiration!
Thanks so much for popping in today to have a look at my creation!
