Butterfly shaker card

Hi everyone!  I have another shaker card to share today.  This one uses the negative of a butterfly die for the shaker opening and I filled it with some sequins and beads.
 First I adhered the patterned paper to my card base and then die cut a square using the Pierced Squares.  Next I die cut a butterfly from the Les Papillions set in the center.  This was the base for my shaker part.  Instead of using an adhesive foam sheet like my last card, I used an adhesive foam frame!  I had them in rectangle form, but I just cut a small piece on either side to make it fit.
To accent my frame, I used a bit of 1/8" gold foil washi tape as a border just inside the piercings.  I love the touches of gold it gave, and it highlighted the few gold sequins that were inside.
 The sentiment was die cut from gold mirror cardstock adding even more shiny gold goodness!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!  Here's a close up of the shaker part.
