Challenge #300-Twinkle Twinkle & Challenge 357 - Shaker Cards Epic Celebrations Stampin UP

 The second card I made for today I will submit to the following:
where we are challenged to use a bit of "Twinkle Twinkle" on our cards.
with optional:  Shaker Card.
So I went for it and made a shaker card.  I had no foam tape on hand, so I improvised and cut off the edges of my pop dots and much to my surprise the strips worked "awesome"   I then used my red sparkles that I got from the dollar section at target many many moons ago.  They worked well for that twinkle I was looking for.  Although I added to many at first, which rarely happens, I usually in previous shaker cards add to little, so this time I chose to error on the side of  to much, and ended up having to rip it apart to empty out a few because you couldn't see the shoes.  Live and learn lessons with a stamper.    I think I should buy some inexpensive shoe strings for my next card to add as an embellishment.  Remember the old days when kids use to learn to sew using those boards with designs and shoe laces?  Gosh I wonder if they even have those anymore.  Sorry I got a little side tracked down memory lane.  Any ways.. I hope you like the card.  I used the Epic Celebrations from stamping up. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.   I'd love to have you sign up and follow my blog. Please also will you stop by my facebook page here.. I'm taking a poll and would love your input.  
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping
