Shaking it up!

Hey!  Just posting, real quick, with a shaker card I created today for a friend. :)
I spent a day at home today and enjoyed it so much.  A long walk outdoors early this morning (in our unusually warm December weather!), then breakfast with...coffee! Yum.  A great way to begin the day, right?

Let me get back on track. My card.
Even though shaker cards can be a bit of a challenge, they're so much fun to make.  Well...it wasn't fun when I messed up the first banner panel.  Forgetting to add the clear acetate window, didn't work well to hold the sequins inside.  Imagine.

The second attempt?  Much better.

I used a mixture of clear sequins and beads in this card.  This blue card stock is showing much darker than it actually is.  My photo editing software just couldn't seem to get it right.

Thanks for taking a look!
