TSOT #441 - Happy Birthday Shaker

Welcome to Try Stampin' on Tuesday's weekly challenge!

I love this sketch - there are so many possibilities here! I chose to follow the sketch pretty carefully except I changed the centre shape from a square to a circle. 

I started with some old patterned paper and found complementary pieces in a striped pattern and a solid colour. That made up the base of my card. The shaker was created separately with coordinating sequins placed inside the window. The shaker top already has Happy Birthday welded into it. I used a piecing tool and created faux stitching marks along the circle. Some silver foil paper was added along with a few coordinating sequins. 

Come and join us at TSOT and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
