Bright Birthday Shaker

Here's my card for the current Viva la Verve sketch.  It's also my entry for Verve's sequin themed August Diva Inspiration Challenge.

Bright Birthday Shaker card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps
I used sequins to make a shaker window for the focal image panel.  The "happy birthday" sentiment from Verve's Treasured Words set was stamped in rose ink on a white panel. I tossed a mix of sequins on top of the text before adding a shaker window on top. 

I adhered the shaker piece to a piece of festive patterned paper.  A pretty blue fishtail flag strip was tucked underneath the right edge of the shaker.  The paper was matted on contrasting blue cardstock, then adhered to a peachy colored panel.  After layering the panel on coordinating cardstock mats, I adhered it to an easy to write on white card base.

Materials Used:
Treasured Words stamp set (Verve Stamps); Memento Luxe Rose Bud ink (Tsukineko); Melon Mambo cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Summer Sunrise cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Lakehouse cardstock (WPlus9); Summer Soul 6x6 paper pad (Fancy Pants); sequins (Pretty Pink Posh); sequin mix (Avery Elle); Fishtail Flag Stax die (My Favorite Things); acetate; foam tape
