For this card I filled the shaker part with bird seed. Isn't that just the neatest? I received a card at the Stampin' Up! convention with a bird seed shaker and just new that I would have to do one myself! And the seeds go perfectly with the watering can and flower pot stamp from Paper Pretties... too neat! The sentiment is from the new Stampin' Up! hostess set Best Yet.
