Birthday Shaker

I made a fun birthday card last month, I was inspired by another creative coach’s creation.  I love this adorable set, Stampin UP!’s Balloon Adventures and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit dies.  I used all Stampin UP! cardstock. I actually had planned to cut the balloons out in black cardstock and glue them on, but I decided to color the white cardstock instead with a black marker and go over it with a wink of stella.  I  used a gold metallic marker. I used gold cardstock and I even had gold envelopes from a project I’d completed earlier.  I did not have black and gold sequins that I thought I had, so I used black sequins as well as sequins from the chocolates collection from My Favorite Things.
