365 Cards...Challenge Day 135

Well I'm playing catch-up as this is yesterdays challenge
'Card to incorporate a see through window of some sort'
I have done a shaker card and hope it will slip through the rule net.
I had to think long and hard over this as I haven't done a card with a window or used acetate for years...oh! the shame...all these techniques and I hardly ever step outside of my box.
The idea for this card is from one I did a few years back.
And I remember why I don't do them now LOL!! :-
The acetate shaker 'bubble' was slightly filled with a couple of flowers a punched swirl and some accent micro beads and backed with a piece of the patterned paper before being inserted into a pre-cut aperture in the piece of plainish card....oh! the joy of accent beads sticking to where they were not supposed to be stuck and staticly clinging to the acetate in all manner of silly ways and jumping out when I tried to stick the DST on ...never again.
Ingredients :-
Papers & white card - Basic Grey 'Cupcake'
Base Card - Misc. from stash
Wording - Tim Holtz Junkitz epoxy stickerz
Accent micro beads, flowers, acetate shaker bubble, ribbon and clip all from my stash.
The mini swirly flourishes were cut using my Woodware punch

I apologize yet again for the poor photography, but I have since found a tutorial on how to make a light box for photography so you won't have to wait much longer for a, hopefully, decent piccy.
I will still scan flat cards though. :D

I wondered where your card was and it was worth waiting for. I have loads of accent beads that I haven't used and it has given me an idea of how to use some.

Great card Jenny :)

Great job! Very cute. I remember all those microbeads from when shaker boxes were all the rage! I just got rid of them all...maybe should have saved some...hee hee.
