Our son turns 40 next week!!! That deserves something special. And nothing says celebration like a shaker card full of sequins! I'm adding another card to Lisa's Shake it Up challenge and sneaking this in for this week's Teapot challenge, Year of the Rat. No rats, but I used lots of blue, faux metal, 3 vellum pieces and 2 main images. Old stamps that haven't seen ink in years and old sequins fit Julie's USEIT2020 challenge.
Stamped, colored and fussy cut the fortune teller. Stamped him again on pp and fussy cut to create a robe. Brushed blue and silver ink on the bg and stamped silver stars. Stamped the crystal ball and birthday sentiment, shaded the edges. Die cut three layers of fun foam, glued together with an acrylic sheet, added micro beads and silver star sequins and backed it with the stamped panel to create the shaker. Die cut a vellum frame, sentiment strip and the Lucky Fortune panel. Die cut a silver base. Die cut a vellum star, stamped 40 and adhered to the Lucky Fortune panel. Assembled and added a popped up silver frame to balance the height and some extra star sequins. TFL

So cute! - That fortune teller looks as though he might have a few trick up his sleeves and his fussy cut robe is very cool. 40 is one of those milestone birthdays . . . .I know it used to be considered "Over the Hill" but when my kids reached that age they looked WAY to young to be considered past middle age.

What a wonderful and fun shaker card for your son’s special birthday, Carla, he is sure to love this! At first I thought- wow, 40 - and then I realised my son No. 1 is only 4 years from there - where do the years go?

Fun shaker card for your son's birthday, Carla. I am sure he will be smiling over this one. I don't know if you see the Liberty Mutual insurance commercials or not but this guy looks just like Zoltar on those tv ads.
