MCT Designer's Challenge....HB2U!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another
MCT Designer's Challenge!

Here are the details for this NEW challenge:
~ Please use either the "photo inspiration" or the "Sketch" OR you are more than welcome to use BOTH to create a project of YOUR CHOICE! ;)
~ You must use at least ONE MCT item.
~ Deadline for the challenge will be on August 6th, 2015 at midnight PST!
~ Link your projects up to the Mr. Linky on the MCT Blog HERE
~ Last, but certainly not least, leave a comment & have a CRAFTY GOOD time! :) 

For my inspiration, I used both the sketch and photo to make a birthday card for my nephew.
I just love making shaker cards and since this is for my now 5 year old nephew, I thought he would get a kick out of this :)
I used my favorite card mat die~ the large Stitched Rectangular Frame Die and added some extra detail by stamping the Grainy Wood Background onto it.  Next for the shaker window, I used the frame from the 4X4 Journal Die set and altered it alittle by trimming the bottom off. Next I stamped my sentiment onto the cardstock that would be placed inside the shaker, added my sequins and sealed up the whole embellishment.
Finally I die cut some balloons using pattern paper and the Stitched Party Dies and popped them onto the front of my frame using some foam pop dots. Some hemp twine for the strings finishes up my card.
