Wedding Shaker Card

I'm here today with a shaker card I made for my sister's friend and her new husband - they were married (by my sister!!!) on the beach in Mexico.   My sis brought back some beach sand and I knew it'd make the perfect shaker filler! 
 **Excuse the poor iPhone photos.   I was in a hurry to get it to my sister and didn't have time to pull out my good camera!

The shaker portion is from the Sprinkles & Shakers set from PTI.    I printed out a verse from their ceremony on vellum and layered it over some ocean print patterned paper.    The filler is sand and microbeads as well as a few small shells.   Since the shaker was the main focus, the only additional things I added were the gold strip down the side of the card and the embossed front panel.

I hope they enjoy the card  - it was fun to make something that included a special memory for them!

Challenges:
Muse Challenge #114 (I utilized the embossed background and simple main focus element from Marion's gorgeous card)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Clean & Simple (maybe the shaker part wasn't exactly "simple", but it does have a clean & simple look, lol!)
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  - Due Date (This was definitely on my to-do list - my sister needs the card for this weekend :)
