Tea Party - Shaker Card

My very first shaker card!!!
I got this amazing teapot die from Paper Sweeties
and couldn't wait to use it!

I cut the teapost from this beautiful paper I have from Docraft, and then cut the circle out with a Sizzix scalloped circle die so that the "tea" would show through.  I can't give a full description here on how to make a shaker card, but I might do a YouTube video soon.  The "tea" in the pot is Doodlebug Chunky Sugar Coating glitter, "Bon Bon", and the "tea" coming out of the spout is matching Doodlebug sequins.  The cupcakes are from a CTMH stamp set my best friend gave me, and the teacups are from a stamp set that came with my Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.  All of the images are stamped on glossy cardstock and colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  There is a paper doily behind it all to give it an elegant look.
I have to say that this is one of my favorite cards I have ever made....and I was lucky enough to have it featured in the October 2015 issue of Quick Cards made Easy :)

I am entering this card in a few challenges.....
