Ready to get started on another DELICIOUS Birthday Week....
We want to SHAKE you up a bit... 
so we're gonna have you create a 'Shaker' Card!  
The Challenge this week is to make a Birthday Shaker Card!
Your TWIST this week...add CONFETTI!

Never made a shaker card, not a problem. Here is how to make a shaker card.  
A.  Use die templates to cut a frame out of card stock. 
  TIP:  You can also use punches or a paper cutter to create a frame. 
      B.  Use the larger die to cut the acetate and patterned paper to the same size as the frame.  
      C.  Sponge, stamp or paint the frame if you want a certain effect. 
      D.  Use strong adhesive on the back of the frame and place acetate over your frame. Let dry. 
E.  Cut the mounting tape into thin strips and attached to the back side of frame that has the acetate.
F.  Leave no gaps between the strips where your shaker card "filling" might escape through. 
  TIP: mounting tape is flexible & easy to shape. (if you take the paper backing      off  before adhering it to your frame.) 
G.  Add confetti, glitter or any other filling to the front of the shaker card frame.
  TIP:  If you need to make your frame higher,  for your filling( because of the filling thickness), add another layer of mounting tape over this one. 
H.  Line patterned paper up face down over your frame. Press down. 
I.  You now have your very own "Shaker" card

Hi just entered this challenge after getting the suggestion from Georgia . I think there's lots and lots of pink on this card to meet the requirements.
