Addicted To Stamps And More #408 - Birthdays...

Hi! I am so thrilled to be rejoining the ATSM team after a small break! Addicted to Stamps and More was the very first DT gig I got. And it is still one of the best teams I have worked with! Thanks, Kylie for giving me another opportunity to join this great challenge! The theme this time is:

This challenge is also the 9th birthday celebration for the ATSM blog! I created a shaker + easel card for a little boy who celebrates his birthday next week. 

This card came together really quickly, mainly because it had to be posted the next day! I used the beautiful Hello Dino stamp and die set by Lil' Inker and Memento dew drop inks to stamp and die cut the images.

 I inked the base circles lightly with distress inks. I used the Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape to create the shaker. I really love this tape as it is very strong and easy to work with. The sequins are from my stash.

This was a fun card to create and I am happy that I was able to combine a shaker element with an easel card. You can check out my other card with the same combination here

I hope you liked my card and will create something beautiful for this challenge. You can link your creations to the ATSM gallery. Please don't forget to visit the other DT who have some incredible inspiration for you. I look forward to visiting you in our gallery.
