Loads of Fun Birthday Card

I recently purchased the Lawn Fawn "Loads of Fun" stamp and die sets and followed some inspiration on the Lawn Fawn blog to make these shaker cards. I really love shaker cards!
I stamped and die cut the elements for this card and then colored them with Copics. I used a Gina Marie Rounded Stitched Rectangles die for the orange cardstock background. I used Gina Marie Stitched Circles dies to create the shaker element and added some white beads for "suds" in the washing machine. I love the sentiment here! I have some other ideas for this set, too. Now I just need work to slow down so I have more craft time!
Here's a close up:
