4th of July shaker card

I bought a Fuse tool a few months ago, with the goal of using it for shaker cards.  I haven't had a chance to try it out until today.  This tool makes it so much easier to create a shaker card!  There are lots of videos available on how to use the Fuse tool for shaker cards, but I used this one from Kristina Werner.

I used a rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp to cut the opening in the card front, and used my Cricut for the rectangle frame.  The shaker pouch is filled with red, blue, gold and clear sequins along with some star sequins and silver and red seed beeds.  The small tags are from a Paper Trey Ink stamp and die set and the word is a Tim Holtz sticker; papers are from BoBunny and the navy cardstock is from Simon Says Stamp. 

I'm entering this card in the Dies 'R Us challenge (celebration) and in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, using the diagonal line of blue, twine, and rectangle.
