Shabby Chic Shaker Card

Happy Sunday! 
Today, I'm sharing with you a shabby chic shaker card. I have made one shaker card prior to this one, but I will share it with you at a later time. first shaker card is for a contest coming soon. :) This card is for this week's Anything Goes at Cheery Lynn Designs # 173. 
I was planning to make a purple card since I don't use that color very often, however I ended up using pinks, creams, and browns. All the diecuts are from Cheery Lynn and I used a MS punch along the edge of the cream cardstock. Did you notice the big brown bow? I finally figured out how to make this gorgeous double bows that I have admired from soooo many cardmakers. Yay!

I used a bit of lace for the top of the window for a curtain. The tiny beads are in each separate window. I used white foam to raise the card up and clear transparency film plus cardstock on top for the window.

Here is a close up of the flowers. I used Gala Glitz in brown for the centers. The stamp "thanks"I used brown chalk and fussy cut out. Then I curled it a bit with my fingers. The beautiful stamps are from Just Rite. I love making lots of thank you cards because you never know when you need one right away! 

Loving the double bow :) 
I also added pink pearls to the top of the window and one in each corner of the punched corners.

An inside view of the card and I even added another flower after I took this picture. 
You can see it on my video tutorial below...
