This card fits in 3 challenges, Monday's shaker challenge, Tuesday's Teaparty embossing and today's WT bows
I've embossed the front die cut the aperture and added an extra frame circle, stamped the forest and deer, added acetate behind the front panel and used Japan beads for the shaker, I don't know how you call them in English but in France they're calles Perles du Japon I use them in soup, tied the raffia around the card and made the bow, stamped the sentiment and added a bit of raffia too

What a beautiful shaker, Anita. The monochrome gives it a cold winter effect but also very tranquil and peaceful. It reminds me of the time I had to walk home from work because of snow, and all the deer in the park were clustered out by the roadside.

So pretty. Perles du Japon is called tapioca in Canada. I use it mainly for thickening oven stew but my mother would sometimes make a sweet pudding with it. I have not been able to get any here for months due to Covid shortages.
Anita, I've been using tapioca pearls (also called boba - very popular as boba drinks, like boba milk tea, my daughters have this every chance they get) for different recipes, but I never thought of using them in cards - you are so clever! Love your elegantly beautiful card - and way to go with all those challenges!
