Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the 

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used:

To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.

Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.

I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.

I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  

After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then attached to the front of the girl with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

A square frame was die cut from cardstock and placed around the pocket with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4".  

To mount the framed pocket to the card, I used black Crafty Foam Tape.  

For the birthday girl, after stamping the image onto watercolor page with black Staz-On pink, I colored her in with watercolor pencils.  The sentiment was stamped onto patterned paper and then punched out with an oval punch.

I added more decorative elements by die-cutting two of the banners from Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut.  

Here you can see all of the yummy, 3-D layers!

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
