Football Shaker Card in Southampton/Saints colours using Stampin' Up! Products :-)

Hello there, 
Today I have a card that actually turned out exactly as I envisioned! Now that doesn't happen too often - well, not to me anyway! It was my friends sons birthday and he is football crazy, particularly Southampton, who are otherwise know as the Saints (if you are a non-football person ;-))
The Saints kit is red and white striped and I wanted to incorporate that in the card and make it a shaker card and this is what I came up with...
 I used a Neat and Tangled die for the striped background and topped it with stamped footballs from the (retired) Goal stamp set by SU! and some flat sequins before sewing a top layer of window sheets over the top... It's not the neatest sewing, I admit, so don't look too closely please ;-)
 This Happy Birthday is from the Party Wishes stamp set which is on the retiring list too :-(
 As you can see here this is quite a flat shaker card so I chose just the flat sequins from the pack.
 And a top view of the card.
 TIP: Try using washi tape to seal your envelopes for a bit of extra decoration ;-)
And I even decorated the bag to match today!
Well, the birthday boy liked his card and I hope you do too?
Thanks so much for looking today.
