Shake! Shake! Shake!

This is the first shaker card I have ever made. It's one of those things that I thought some day I might make. Well, some day came today! I saw the cutest shaker cards over at Stamps and Smiles Project Tuesday. I thought this would be the perfect card for my sweet, almost three years old, grandson. He loves cats, spiders, and witches. This card has all three!
I cut a black circle with a Nesties and painted dots around the edges with orange "Smooch." I placed an orange circle in the center and then one of my favorite Softpencil images, Michu on a broomstick.
BTW, ALL Softpencil Halloween images are on sale for $2 each!
I then cut four circle frames, layered, and glued them together, and painted black around the inner and outer rims. I added an acetate circle and a DP frame. I added Halloween confetti that I found at Michael's along with some MS glitter. I had to add the glitter because static kept making the confetti stick to the acetate, and it wouldn't shake! Glitter solved the problem and added some extra sparkle.
