i had made the shaker element for this card about a week ago. when i had the idea to cut a square around the negative image of the star from on board accents and use it to make a shaker, i was sooo pleased with myself....and then i couldn't figure out how to incorporate it into a card. duh...
but inspiration came today (partly from the dirty dozen gallery, partly because the love it set just came with a workshop order and i realized it would work perfectly) and i finally used my shaker star! in the end i kicked myself for not putting in more glitter so that it filled up more of the window, but...i'm still quite tickled with the end result. :)
thanks for looking!

Oh, great card. Could be for a guy birthday or a baby even. The shaker just makes it so special.I love the "Love It" stamp set, but haven't done much with it. Sooooo, in my favorites your card goes! TFS
