Nautical Birthday

Nautical seems to be all the rage right now!

I see it everywhere, from crafts to clothing to decorating.

The toppings option over at Seize The Birthday is red, white and blue this week.

I think that nautical always looks great in red, white and blue; so that's what I chose to do for my card.

I found these awesome little shake it pouches by Impression Obsession, that turn making your shaker cards into a breeze. I used a cut file by Silhouette Studio  to make my shaker insert look like a porthole.

Supplies used: card stock - white, red, blue; patterned papers by Authentique; shaker pouch by Impression Obsession; anchor and porthole cut files by Silhouette Studio; stamp - Dollar Bin at Michaels; ink - Stampin' Up; sequins and beads - my stash; twine - Trendy Twine. 

Thanks for popping by!
