Happy 4th....{MCT To Die For}

Good morning everyone!
I am sharing a card today for
My Creative Time's
"Too Die For Tuesday"
This is where we share ideas on how to stretch your dies.
With the 4th of July right around the corner I made a mini shaker using last releases  set~ PinWheel Centers
Take a look and let me know what you think....
Shakers are so much fun to make and add such a different element to cards. They don't even have to be a large shaker piece, like the one I added to my card to add a fun twist to a card.
To make my card, I used the largest star die from the Pinwheel Centers set and die cut it into a Ribbon End Banner.
Since I wanted that banner piece to be larger than the rest, I stretched my die to extend the banner piece.  My star was die cut into the banner and then filled with red and white seed beads.
The red and white banner pieces were cut using the same banner set, making them the sizes smaller and then arranged onto my card mat.
The whole card mat, made from a piece of white cardstock and layered with a piece of designer cardstock die cut using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More set was then popped up onto my A2 card base.
The sentiment, from My Little Firecracker was stamped onto the front of my card and some hemp cord was added with a bow for the finishing touch.

What do you think of my card? I hope I gave you another idea on how to use those awesome MCT dies!!!
