Shaker Birthday Card ~ Tic Tac Toe Color Dare #324

We're starting 2019 off with our popular Tic Tac Toe Color Challenge!
It's easy and fun because all you have to do is pick a row, column or diagonal for your colors. You can even add one of the other colors to your row, etc. Or just use them all! For my card I used the bottom row and added Clover.

I was inspired by a card created by Becca Whitham. I changed the circle element into a shaker. I LOVE shaker cards! With our Shaker Window Kits it's soooooooo easy! There is a Thin Cut for the window and confetti, window foam and acetate and loose sequins to help you create your shaker. It's like a sandwich with the bottom layer being the back of the sandwich. I stamped one this one. Next comes the foam ring and the confetti and/or sequins. Now you close the sandwich with the acetate and you're done! Now you can adhere your shaker sandwich on a card or layout!

I also used some tiny Glue Dots to place a few of the sequins as accents above the shaker. For the Raspberry Twine once I tied it to the card I used a piercing tool to fray the ends for some fun texture.
