Fun in the Sun Birthday

I have a very dear friend who has a birthday coming up at the end of the month. And I was trying to figure out something especially different for her for her birthday card. I mean, flowers are nice, but I wanted something a little more fun and unique because she is such a fun and unique lady. And Guylou of Guylou's Inimitability gave me the  perfect idea. She has a new image out called Leah at the Beach. What better way to celebrate a birthday than to have some fun in the sun! She also had a challenge that asked you to make a shaker card, so this is what I came up with.
I made Leah on a beach with an actual beach background at sunset. She's had a long happy day at the beach. And just for a little something different...I'm sending my friend some sand in the shaker card...flowersoft sand that is! With a few shells just in case she likes to collect them.

You can find Leah at the Beach here, and the directions for the shaker card here. I then added a wonderful sentiment that I found at Splitcoast Stampers.
