Happy Shaker

The AAA Birthday Challenge this month is: a shaker card.
They're also looking for a new DT memmber, if you fancy it, I am applying :-D

For my Shaker I diecut the word Happy from a sturdy panel. Traced the openings onto the cardbase so I could apply my rainbow Distress inks.As the word is short, I've used purple for my background.

I stamped the word Birthday underneath, it's from Simon Says Stamp It's your birthday 3x4 set.
The letters are from Marianne Design Col 1449.
Distress inks: Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon.

For my shaker filling, I've used a large confetti glitter that is iridescent or translucent rather.
As the letters are so close together, I didn't fancy trying to separate the colours, so I applied colour to the background and used a glitter that wouldn't cover my colours.
