Tonight I made a few cards using Centerpieces Congratulations Shaker Die-namics.



I started by cutting out the different elements from the Die-namics set.  I cut out the frame in Sno Cone Card Stock and then layered the Wild Cherry letters over the top.  The confetti inside the shakers is made of stars and circles of various rainbow colors.  I placed a sheet of acetate directly underneath the frame and then popped it up with foam tape onto a Steel Grey background.  I did add some layered stamping on the bottom panel with the Star Background and the On the Diagonal Background


Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in today's Teaser AND find out how you can win some MFT goodies!  

You can find these fabulous products waiting for you in the MFT Boutique:
