Gonna Party! It's Connie's Birthday! Let's go!

For my project, I made a really fun Shaker Card! This is my 1st one ever...its not perfect, but i'm very pleased with it!

I used my Silhouette to cut more of my project. The card and envelope is a set from the Sil. Store, a7 size. 


The shaker tag came from SVGcuttingfiles. Ann has such cute files in her store! I stamped the inside of the tag with Jaded Blossoms "Birthday Treat Tags". I put some sequins inside the tag to "shake" around. The candle flame is embossed with a swirly cuttlebug folder that i have (i'm sorry, i can't remember the name of it)
I added a small bow to the bottom and put a faux stitch border around the card.

The envelope liner has the same matching paper as the card mat does. I used JB's "Birthday Bingo" for the sentiment and the die is their "flag die".

I hope you enjoyed my project today and are having fun along the hop! 

Ms. Connie, here's a very Happy Birthday to you! 

 Up next is Jessica!

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way.
