Ice Cream Dream ~ June 2015 SOTM ~ Shaker card ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this project I used the following products ~ Adventure Fundamental papers, Lagoon and White Daisy cardstock.  The “happy birthday” if from Joyful Birthday B1419.  I used my Shin Han markers to color in the adorable puppy.  I did use some metal dies to cut my circle but it could be done using a punch, Cricut or Silhouette.  I used foam sheets from a craft store to act as the spacer between the card base and the top.  I love CTMH sequins but I used some from my stash to float in the card.

Happy Crafting!
