A Shaker Card with Sequins

Hello! I am having so much fun with sequins lately. Today I am excited to share my latest card with you!
It's a "shaker" card!! No stitching or sewing involved and best of all, no mess while making it!
celebrate! it's your day!
The "secret" behind negative butterfly diecut with sequins is using a small clear plastic packet! I used a small clear packaging of Hero Arts ribbons! All you need to do is to trim and seal off the packet with tape and then use the pop dots for the backing. How easy is that?
In order to make the card design even more interesting, I added the vellum butterfly and sentiment (from SRM stickers).  What do you think? If I can make a shaker card this easily, so can you!
Thanks for stopping by!
