My First Shaker Card...

I've had this cutie for some time now, but just never inked him up until now. What was I waiting for.. beats me.. but I do have a few of those that I must have and then they don't see ink for awhile. I am entering this into the Lili of the Valley Challenge this week since the theme is Fun and Games. And yes, he's on his way to the lake to play with him boat. I also decided to play along on the Crazy 4 Challenges after I saw all these shaker cards, first on LOTV, and then on Cindy Haffner's blog so thanks for the inspiration guys. What fun this was to make, and it was so easy, I know I'll be making a few more. So with all that said and done here is my take on the shaker card.

A close up of the shaker.. Ok I kind of went overboad with the sparkle. Will put a little less in my next one...

Once again I made a box to go along with it. Since the paper was already embossed with the sail boat. I decided to leave it and not add any embellishments to the box. I didn't want to hide the beautiful boat. So here is a picture of the box

The box and the card:

The card in the box:
