Happy Birthday with Sprinkles on Top

Hi there everyone.

I'm a little excited because I received my very first parcel ever from Papertrey Ink. I ordered the Makeit Market Kit: Shakers & Sprinkles and a couple other goodies.

When it all arrived yesterday, I calmy put the package in my craft room and continued to quickly finish up my housework. Once done, I zoomed straight in there to unpack everything.

This kit is so fun. There are a heap of dies, stamps, papers and sequins/sprinkles etc to make amazing shaker cards. Of course, you don't have to make a shaker card but I did for my first go.

Now I need more so my wishlist has grown again.

Just to get a feel of what I could make with all this, I headed on over to the designer Betsy Veldmans blog to get some inspiration and I CASED one of her cards.

Here it is -

Everything I used was from the kit (except for my base and scallop frame card stock). 

The kit even comes with double sided foam sheets for you to die cut to create your shaker. This stuff is very, very sticky and a bit hard to get everything straight. I did end up a bit lop sided but nevermind. 

I stamped the "Happy Birthday", "with" and "on top" and then laid my glittery die cut Sprinkles over the top of the acetate once it was all put together.

Here is another photo showing the sprinkles and stars I used within the shaker -

There are confetti dies in this kit too. The stars and hearts come from two different dies. Love them!

This card is for my niece who turns 11 next month. I have to say this is one of my most favourite cards that I have made. It is so fun.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Love to Create - Dies and Sparkle
Moo Mania - Bright and Cheerful
Inky Chicks - Die Cuts only (no images)

(I also have to thank Sandie & Kim for my little addiction to PTI that I seemed to have developed. I used Sandie's PTI stamps while staying with her in London and a couple of weeks ago, Kim and I were emailing each other and talking about it and the next thing I knew my bank account was smaller!! Thanks ladies.....)

Thanks so much for looking xx
