Sketch and Color Challenge #41 - Your Next Stamp

Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by
Today I would love to show off my shaker card created for the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #41
I got some awesome inspiration from the DT posts, but as I thought more.. I turned my idea into a shaker card.  After all I say SHAKER EVERYTHING! LOL  They are fun to create and just love the outcome of shakers.
So first I created the main part of the sketch.. the 3 windows.  I used an inside out square die to create my windows.  I then placed transparency film over the windows.. popped up my sketch base with foam ... filled with sequins and nail art tubes (I purchased these at the Dollar Tree and just knew they would come in handy).  
I then created a backing for the shaker.  I used the Confetti stamp and masked off each section so that I could use blue, pink and purple.  I wanted to not only challenge myself for the sketch, but also the color portion.  I adhered that to my shaker portion and moved onto the layers to match the sketch.
I then wanted a birthday theme of some sort so I took out the Balloon Buddies stamp set and stamped what I needed.  I did not purchase the dies when I bought the stamps. So using the stamped images.. I traced and cut on my Brother Scan N Cut.  I cut three different times for the 3 different colors.  I also cut the balloon strings using the Brother Scan N Cut.  I only had room for 3 balloons, so I cut off 2 strings in the batch.   These turned out super tiny so I used my Xyron X to put adhesive on the back..
Once all of this was laid down, the top portion of the white shaker windows needed something.. So I took the single confetti from the Balloon set and stamped the coordinating colors I used for the background of the shaker.  That added just what I needed.  The sequins came into play because I needed to cover up a boo-boo LOL.
The final step was to stamp and use the HB2U from Silly Monster Incognito 2.  I popped that up with some foam for some dimension.
This is my card for the #41 Sketch and Color Challenge.  I hope you like it!  It took a few hours to complete.. After all, the thoughts in my mind don't happen in a few minutes.. It's always a little process, but I love the outcome!
