Father's Day Sequin Shaker

**This is my second post today.  Scroll down or click here to see my first shaker card.
Hi!  I'm back again with another card that I made for the Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Blog Hop.  I probably should space my posts out, but I was too excited not to share this today.  This was actually the first idea that I sketched out for the Sequin Shaker Blog Hop, but I thought it would be more complicated than the second idea I had (I totally thought wrong), so I made it last.  This one came together much quicker and turned out exactly how I had sketched it out (yay!).  I die cut the letters with Papertrey's Headline Alphabet dies, stamped the sentiment with Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold, and the Happy (I LOVE this set...one of my best purchases ever), and mixed some of Stampin' Up's watercolor crayons together to make a minty color for the flicks of color.  The shaker part is filled with silver stars and fresh mint sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and it is such a fun combo.  I popped the whole panel up and added a stamped stripe panel underneath.  The twine was the final touch.  I love clean and simple cards, so I'm entering this into Simon Says Stamp Keep It Clean & Simple Wednesday Challenge as well.
 
Oh, and the quality of the next picture is pretty poor...it's been dark and rainy all day, but I had to include it because you can see the little star sequins better, and I think they are so fun.  Thanks so much for visiting!  It makes me happy that I can share something I love with others. :)
