Summer Fun with Trendy Twine

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
I hope that you are all having a wonderful week!
Today is my DT day to post over at the Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine blog.

Here is what I created.......

A Summer Fun Shaker card!!
For my card, I used the SVG Cutting Files Wavy Card Base.
For my papers, I used Recollections basic card stock & Bazzill Basics Dotted Swiss card stock (yellow & navy blue) for some fun texture. The super fun die cuts (sun & life saver) are from SVG Attic's Just Beachy and the anchor is from SVG Attic's Cape CodThe "Summer Fun!" caption is from the Cricut Design Space. Now you know how much I love my I had to sprinkled a few of the Candy Cane Sequins around my card.

I wrapped the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine around the life saver.
For my shaker, I used the life saver file and Candy Cane Sequins with clear beads.

Next, I placed a red sequins and tiny pearl to the center of the Stars and Stripes bow which 
I then adhered to the die cut anchor.
