Balloon Shaker Card

I love shaker cards, but I find them pretty time consuming to make. I recently invested in some of Papertrey Ink's double-sided adhesive foam, and I used it to make a set of 10 birthday cards for my mom. It was still a pretty time-consuming batch of cards to make, but I do think the double-sided adhesive helped. 
The balloon shaker element is a die set from PTI that includes some die cut confetti, stars, strings and the "Hooray" sentiment I added in the balloon. I also added some beads and metallic balloons and confetti. The smaller balloon on the right side is an Avery Elle die. 
The card base is an A2 DCWV card. 
Inside the card, I used a Bugaboo image and sentiment that I colored digitally and then die cut using a Poppy Stamps die. I die cut a mat for it from the same Poppy Stamps set. 
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - W, 5E - Happy Birthday
