HERE is janeelizabeth's (Jane France) card I cased, making the window an acetate one. I thought her card would adapt beautifully to a shaker card. I haven't done this in a long time, and it took me forevah, but I love the results.
I eliminated the sentiment and mesh, using a stencil and real shells. I also added a ribbon. I kept the same layout, moving things around a tiny bit.
Jane, your card was so lovely, I just had to try my hand at a case for the challenge. I hope you like it.

Oh, Anne ~ This is just delightful! It reminds me of some of the summer days of my youth down on the Jersey shore. (Of course, I'm sure you were thinking more New England than New Jersey!) Your shaker with the mica chips is an added bonus! And your cluster of shells makes a very nice accent. Beautiful card, my friend!
