30th Birthday Twisted Easel

Here is a project that took quite a lot of work! For this project I used Papermania Mascaline papers, Coredinations gemstones, Acetate, Seed beads, Blue craft wire, Happy Birthday glitter greeting and a candle.
First I covered the top half of the card in papermania papers and then used my Martha stewart score board to make a twisted easel card. It was really easy but looks really different!
I then created the bottle using a template, coredinations card and acetate, and made it into a shaker element by using 3d foam pads and filling the middle with seed beads that matched the papers. Next I used blue craft wire and the same seed beads curled around the handle of my craft knife. I then covered the bottom of the card with matching papers and used my Cricut to cut the shapes and the 30 that I used as my anchor.
Lastly I added the glitter 'Happy Birthday' and candle embellishment onto the top of the card next to the bottle.
I really hope my cousin likes it!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Tip Top Tuesday: Happy Birthday
