Birthday Wishes Shaker Card....{Challenge Card}

Morning everyone and Happy Tuesday!
I have a birthday card to share today that I made to enter a few challenges..
First up is the sketch from this week's Peachy Keen Stamps challenge and next is the color combo from My Craft Spot.
I hope you like my shaker card, it was inspired by Nikki over at Scrappin' Navy Wife. She makes the most beautiful shaker cards!
So here are my inspirations....
and my take on the sketch and colors...Hope you like it!
What do you think??? I had a hard time taking a picture of this without getting a reflection back from the plastic on the shaker. This seems to be the best I can do with my poor photography skills :(
Anyways, I took the PKS sketch and did a flip and twist to bring the main part of the sketch up to the top right hand corner. That way the sequins could be seen laying in the bottom.
Here is a close-up of all the details from this card.  I used the sequins I have in my stash and added the sentiment under the shaker part using the October SOTM set from PKS. I further embellished the card with the balloon die cuts, tiny tag die cut and button die cut all from MCT. To complete the card, I added some Totally White Trendy Twine for the balloon strings and button bow.

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Echo Park Beautiful Life
white card stock
Stamps~ PKS~October SOTM
Dies/Cuts~ My Creative Time
Stitched Party Dies
Stitched Button Dies
Teeny Tag Die
Embellishments~ Trendy Twine~Totally White
pop dots

So there is my card for today. I hope you all like it!! I can totally see making more of these shaker cards....they are so fun! Just need to get some better foam tape and more sequins :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT Tuesday!!
