Fruity B-day shaker card

Not much to be said about this card with exception of the material I've used for the 'transparent window'... I couldn't find acetate sheets and I therefore used that kind of clear plastic material used to make protective covers for books. It may not be as transparent as acetate sheets but it turned out to be a valuable substitute! 
Below you have the card (which is, by the way, a summer-ish B-day card)

The windows in the front of the card and the coloured frames have been created by using the Sizzix Squares Framelits Die Set. To seal the plastic bags I've initially tried with the glue gun but it was a mess, so I eventually opted for double sided scotch which perfectly worked. 

I've filled the plastic windows with Martha Stewart Red micro beads, fruit nail decorations and music note confetti (most of these tiny decoration were in the package gift I got from

Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
