Authentique Paper & Pretty Pink Posh- Perfectly "Pretty" Shaker Cards

Hello Authentique fans! Heather here with two fun versions of the great shaker card. Both versions are super fun to shake and see all of the sparkle.
The first shaker is the more traditional shaker card. I took a piece of Classique: Pretty Collection paper in Rosette, and cut out a circle in the middle. Then I did the same to a slightly smaller piece of craft foam. I then sandwiched a piece of clear vellum between the Rosette paper and the foam. When the glue dried, I placed quite a few of the great Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Marshmallow, Pink Peonies and Onyx in the layered foam and paper.
I then layered a piece of Diamond behind the window and sequins. Then glued the entire thing to the card base. A Details sticker and some May Arts ribbon ties this all together.
Once that was done, I added a bit more sparkle by gluing a few sequins to some of the polka dots on the patterned paper. 
For my second card, I used a piece of vellum packaging as the shaker part of my card. I filled a pouch with the Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Marshmallow, Pink Peonies and Onyx.
I cut a sweet doily using my Top Dog Die Set in Cherish.
The sentiment is a layered Details sticker on top of a Components die cut. 
A few extra touches like extra sequins, some faux stitching and another die cut make this just too sweet. 
I hope you create some of your own variations on the shaker card. Especially if they are filled with the lovely sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!

Supplies Used:
Authentique Paper: Classique: Pretty (Rosette, Diamond, Details stickers, Components die cuts)
Pretty Pink Posh sequins: Marshmallow, Pink Peonies, Onyx
Other Supplies: Top Dog Dies (Cherish Doilies), May Arts ribbon, craft foam, clear vellum, vellum pocket, silver pen
