Candle Shaker Card

Hello Everybody!

So for this card I was inspired by the Shaker Challenge happening now at CAS-ual Fridays.  I have been wanting to make one and I bought a whole bunch of stuff to make one from the Scrapbook Expo a few months ago.  And now-finally some inspiration.  :)

It's also my sister's birthday.  (ok a little past but who's really keeping count?  ok maybe she is!) ;)  And I just found out that her favorite color is red.  So between the challenge of shaker cards and the favorite color red, this is what happened:

So fun, right?!  So I used the silhouette for the flame (from a different candle cut) and made the frame for the shaker part of the candle.  Now the foam is from Queen and Company.  Just the foam.  I didn't buy the die cuts.  I figured it out on the silhouette.  It took about 4 tries, but I finally got it.  I had to get into those 8th measurements (blarg) but I did it.  LOL!  And the cute sequins on the inside--Also Queen and Company.

At the Expo I had to decide-cute sequins or die cuts....totally the cute sequins!  Their pearls and a few of Q&CO diamonds are in there too.  The sentiment is an old fabric sticker.  The background paper is from TPC studio.

I glued a couple of the sequins on the background to make it seem a little fuller.

I am linking this up to the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by today!  Until next time my friends...Make a wish!
