Seize the Birthday - Red, White and YOU

Hello and happy Thursday! 

Two weeks fly by like wind :)! It is already time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday!
The Toppings option for next fortnight is Red, White and YOU(color of your choice)! 

The color of my choice is blue and I made a patriotic birthday shaker card.

I started off by making a cutting file for a star with comet tail and cut it from a white card stock with my Cricut. For the background I colored a watercolor panel using Gansai Tambi watercolor in blue for the star and in red for the comet tail. I splattered blue and red watercolor on the front panel and stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts in Parisian Blue and True Navy. I adhered a clear acetate to the shaker window and assembled the shaker card by adding some blue and red star sequins as my shaker elements. I chose a red card base for my card and finished it off by adding a red star sequin.

That's it from my side. Now it's your turn! Choose one color and add to white and red to create your project! Looking forward to seeing your work in the gallery!

Don't forget to stop by Seize the Birthday blog for more inspirations from my team mates and our new Surprise Party Guest Lindsey from Bashful Blogging!

Have a happy day!
