I used the long rectangle nestabilities to cut our an aperture for my shaker card and added acetate to the back I surrounded the aperture with foam tape on the back and filled it with tiny flowers and seed beads I coloured my image with Copic Markers.

It is absolutely stunning to have a shaker "window" of flowers and beads, it looks so attractive with the white tiny flowers in there and bloom in anywhere and any manner. I can't wait to make one.Thanks for such an inspiration.
