My first shaker card!

And I LOVE how it turned out! I found the background paper on clearance at Michael's and knew immediately how it would be used. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder, the Fiskars border punch "threading water", an EK Success heart punch, gold microbeads, some acetate, and then I assembled. Oh, I had also been given some little metallic confetti a few years ago that I cut apart. It did say, "I LOVE you" so I cut it so it would fit just the love in there.
So cute. I'm really enjoying this one!
