red white and black celebration

My hubby celebrated his birthday a few days ago and my son wanted a card for his Dad and requested one with a music theme and this is what I came up with for him.

I decided to use dies as they give a nice clean finish which seems suitable for many men , no fuss and is true for both my hubby and son and must admit I do like clean lines and am not a fussy person myself.
I love these dies by Dave from poppystamps and memory box they all just work so well together. 
I cut a circle from a white base card and filled with acetate to make the shaker card. I don't like it when all the confetti fill falls to the bottom so after placing my confetti shapes I made a close fitting acetate sandwich to keep them in place by using double sided tape to stick another piece of acetate directly to the first sheet of acetate. I used red and silver large and small balloon confetti and silver music note confetti.
I should have said before I added the acetate I cut the music flourish from the white base card overlapping the circle edges. Once the acetate was in place I inlaid the music flourish with another this time cut from black glossy card. Making the acetate larger than the circle means there is something for the inlay to stick to. 
I cut an insert fro the card cutting a circle from it so as not to obscure the window.

The front of the card was completed by attaching the birthday sentiment in red mirricard.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
