Happy Birthday!

Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  Can you believe we are halfway through the first month of 2019 already?  Time just flies by anymore.  Anyway, I would like to share with you a birthday card I made for a friend:


I was inspired to make my card the way I did by a recent YouTube video of Ashley Tucker's.  I loved the simplicity of the layout of the card she made, and thought it would translate perfectly to this birthday card.

I chose the cardstock color based on the swirly on the bottom layer of the cake (Miss Kate's Cuttables), and cut the scalloped rectangle frame using Spellbinders dies out of white cardstock.  The sequins come from Michael's kids section.  I used one layer of 3M foam tape to construct my shaker, but I wish I had used 2 so the sequins would move more freely.  Next time!

Challenges:

Die Cuttin Divas:  Birthday (Spellbinders dies to make the frame)
Cute Card Thursday #565:  Banish the Blues
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday:  ATG or twist to use layers

Thanks for joining me today!  Have a great rest of the week (tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!).  We are set to get hit with 2 snow storms this weekend, so it should be getting interesting around here.  

Take care, and GOD BLESS!
