Birthday Shaker Card

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog on this 7th day of November 2017.
Today is a special day for me. I am celebrating my 30th wedding anniversary. I can't believe how quickly the years have gone. I still remember lots of the excitement of my wedding day. We are going to dinner to celebrate tonight. Just not sure where yet. It will be someplace special I am sure.
 I made this card to give to my hubby. Don't know why I didn't wait until today to post it (lol)! Anyway, my card for today is a birthday shaker card. So let's get started with some details.
This is my card for 2 challenges over on Splitcoaststampers. :

1. Rebecca's DTGD challenge

2. CC646 where Karen was the hostess. She chose powder pink, sweet sugarplum and mint macaron for her color trio. Optional this week is pearls. I used enamel dots because of the type of card I made and its for a little girl so pearls didn't work for me.
powder pink, sweet sugarplum, mint macaron
For the background  Iused sweet sugarplum designer paper from the Stampin'-Up "petal garden collection". I layered that onto sweet sugarplum cardstock and the card base is mint macaron.

The image panel is a birthday die from PTI. I layered a back panel of powder pink to hold the sequins in place. Embellished this panel with enamel dots & twine in the sweet sugarplum & mint macaron colors.

My heart balloon is a balloon die from CottageCutz. Stamped happy birthday in sweet sugarplum and my card is finished. Well, time for me to close this post. I have a few things I want to get done before my hubby comes home from work.
So until next time .......God bless
