Birthday Sketch Challenge

In this DOstamper Stars sketch challenge I took a little different approach to it.  Instead of layering it up, I layered it down.  How I did this is by making a Shaker Card.  I am just loving all the different Shaker cards that I have seen lately.  They are so much fun!! And who wouldn't enjoy getting one!

I love how this card turned out!!

What I like most about this card is all the GREAT embellishments!!  And besides it is a shaker card!  When I first seen the Pom - Pom trim I wasn't that excited about it....but then it just grew on me and now I am loving it!  I also love the Sequin trim that came out about a year ago in Gold.  But with the Occasion Catalog that came out, they now have it in Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim.   These trims just give it that extra little touch!

Inside the shaker part of the card I took the Sequin Assortment with some punched out Silver Glitter Paper.  To punch out the little circles I used the 1/8 Hole punch.  I added these to give that sparkle!  The saying on the card from a new set that also came out in the Occasions Catalog.  This set is a great birthday set.  It is called "Balloon Bash", below is a picture of the set.
