Shaped shaker card

I've got lots of crafty stash that I've got from kits or bundles, for example ive gotbshaped cards from Hunkydory kits and micro beads which I got as a free gift when I brought some embossing powders from eBay.

I decided to make a shaker card using the shaped card. I used a lovely image I brought from Polkadoodles, it's an Emma Canning digi image of a girl with an umbrella. 

I coloured her using similar colours to the frame on the shaped card, mostly Spectrum Noir BTs and CRs. I made the shaker with acetate and clear microbeada and backed this with some Hunkydory printed card so you can't see the workings when you open it. 

I stamped a sentiment onto a die cut shape and layered this onto another shape. Finally I added some bling.

I love this card and am so please with how it turned out. 

I'm entering this into the Digichoosday challenge - Shaping Up
- sugar and spice (that's what little girls are made of)
