Birthday Card ~ Birthday Shaker

One of my crafty New Year's resolutions is to create with some of 
my crafting goodies that have yet to come out to play. 
Another is to shop from my huge paper stash.
And yet another is to send more birthday cards to those I love.
This card will help me fulfill all those resolutions. Whew.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Ovals cut using the Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies from My Creative Time.
*Bow cut using the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die set from My Creative Time.
*Sentiment from the It's All About You Stamp Set from My Creative Time.
*Sequins from my stash.
*Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Memento.

May your day always be filled with love.
