Happy Birthday!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I'm playing along with the current challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  I created a FUN shaker card using some Lawn Fawn Goodies that I picked up over at i {heart} papers

 I tried something a little different on this one...instead of using sequins to fill my shaker I created my own confetti with the coordinating papers and a 1/4" hole punch.  I love how you can customize your filler this way!

Supplies:
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White CS, Baja Breeze CS (SU!), acetateHello Sunshine 6x6 Pad (Lawn Fawn); Stamps: Year Four (Lawn Fawn) and A Gift For You (Uniko Studio); Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Tools: Stitched Banner Set (Lawn Fawn), Stitched Scalloped Borders (Lawn Fawn), 1/4" Hole Punch, Scor-Buddy; Other: Button, Brads, Twine (Hemptique), ATG Tape, Foam Tape
