Happy, Happy Birthday

This photo doesn't do the card justice.  Our challenge at For Fun Challenges is to make a birthday card for your best friend.  My glitter and shaker cards are always the most raved over by my friends.  Anything that you can play with is always a big hit.  So I combined them.  This cute Bugaboo image was coloured in copies.  I then layered a large piece of score tape over the image and poured glitter over the whole thing.  I used my finger to press the glitter in and shook off all the excess.  A large shaker window was built around the image and I used cake decorating sprinkles as my beads.  Just a warning - this card won't go through the mail since the sprinkles will shatter and the sprinkles can begin to bleed colour after about six months.  The flower is made using my Tattered Flowers dies and fabric from two of DH's shirts.  The fabric was too nice to throw away!  The sentiment is an old one from Stamping Up and the DP is from Bo Bunny.

I do hope you'll play along.  The winner will receive 7 images of their choice from Bugaboo.
