Here is my project:
I made a Birthday gift set!

 For the layers of the birthday shaker card, I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies from Gina Marie Designs and Colorbok shaped papers. For the shaker portion I used the Scallop Rectangular Dies (Ebay) and colorful sequins. The Happy Birthday die cut is from the Silhouette Online Store. I used the Stitched Butterfly Die and the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die from My Creative Time.
To complete my card I added white pearls.

For the birthday gift bag, I decorated a mini paper bag from Michaels. I used the same GMD dies and papers. I adhered white pearls to the pretty banner (Ebay). The cupcake die cut is from Lori Whitlock. I stamped the birthday sentiment on a Stitched Oval Die from My Creative Time. For a touch of cuteness, I added a pretty bow and filled it with yummy goodies.

This is the prize being offered on my page!
I will be making a surprise bundle that you will be sure to enjoy!

Thank you for hopping with us!
Thank you Joann for inviting me to take part in this wonderful CELEBRATION.
