What a hoot!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Happy Friday!
I hope that you all have wonderful weekend!!
For today's project I made Birthday Shaker card.
For my papers, I used Recollections basic card stock & chevron pattern paper. 
The purple chevron paper was a piece of scrap that I had left over from a previous card.
The adorable birthday owl is from the "What a hoot!" stamp set.
I colored the owl with Promarkers & Tombow-Dual Brush Pen Set. 
To make my shaker, I used the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies from My Creative Time.
I then filled it with purple & white sequins, white stars & pink beads.
I doodled on the die cut circle and party hat with a white gel pen.
For some pretty sparkle, I adhered a purple rhinestone on the pink bow, placed it to the top of the shaker and sprinkled purple sequins. Next, I stamped the "What a hoot!" sentiment from Pink & Main on a die cut banner and adhered it to the front of the shaker.

Here is a closer look at the pretty pink bow and shaker.

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #247

Other Supplies Used:
Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue
Elmer's Craft Bond Tacky Glue
Foam Tape*Sheet Protectors
