Shake your Birthday.

Shake Shake Shake .... Shake your birthday.

 Shaker cards are always fun to make and this one is for my niece.
Using the challenge from the Card Concept and the use of Pink, Gold and Black.
With black card stock I cut the balloon with a Simon Says balloon die. I backed the die cut with a new sheet of clear acetate with white polka dots from Recollections..
 I backed that with a specialty paper from Recollections in pink with mylar gold dots and filled the space with gold and iridescent sequins.
I cut the sentiment from a different shade of pink card stock and edged that with a die hard oldie but goodie martha steward edge of lace.  I stamped with a new embossing in gold and pink glitter.
I tied off the balloon with pink bakery twine in a bow.
All placed on a soft pink base.

I'd like to add this card to the following challenges if I may:

    The Card Concept - Colors - Using Freestyle

Simon Says - Something New

Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Sparkles - Anything Goes.

Thanks everyone for peeking and have a wonderful day.
