Sand Castle Shaker Card

Hello Friends! 
I love to make shaker cards and this image just screamed to be paired with a Shake it Pouch and sand!  I colored Sand Castle E16112 with Copic markers.  Added some sand to a Lg SquareShaker Pouch  and matted a Shaker Overlay over top.  I framed it with One of the frames from the new All-In-One Square Frames 2 DIE294-YYset.

 Copic Markers Used
Sand: E50, 31, 33, BV00.
Background: B0000, 000, Blender 0.
Pail: YG23, 45, R20, B18

Hello Friend A9734 was die cut with  Mini Circle Tags Die Set DIE012-J and embellished with 2 fish from the  Mini Nautical Set DIE184-L.  A pretty simple card to make!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
