Fake it till you make it

Hey there.
Today I'm sharing my FAKE shaker card with you.

 This is my card for the CASology challenge,
where the theme is

It was going to be a shaker card, until I realised I had no acetate.
So the card section with the boat die, is popped up on foam pads and the sequins
are fixed in place behind it.
Does that make sense?

You don't get the fun of a shaker card, but it's a good alternative.
Pinstripe digi dp  - Pink Petticoat.
Boat die - Provocraft
Banner - stamped in Versa Colour Bisque with die cut from WPlus9 
Sentiment - Penny Black Critters    Sequins.

Hi Caroline,
I love your fake shaker card!!
I always get annoying finger prints on acetate anyway!!

Beautiful soft colours too.
