A Place To Start - August Challenge - Create A Shaker Card

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
I am just delighted with the theme for our challenge this month at A Place To Start!  I love making shaker cards and this challenge gave me the opportunity to create a slimline shaker card, my first.

I have found it easier to use craft foam on my shaker card than messing around with the double-sided foam tape. I also used a single sheet of acetate. 
I forgot how acetate picks up shadows. That is not a defect in my top circle, it is a reflection from the light hitting the acetate. I simply could not take one more picture!😄 This is the first slimline card I have done in almost ten years.  When I saw the framework dies, I had to break my crafting diet and purchase two. I wanted them all but impulse control is a part of my three-year "no spending" challenge.
I did not want acres of white space on the inside of my card so I used my Mini Cubic Stencil to create a pattern that matched the face panel.  I added a touch of "Shaded Lilac" Distress Oxide Ink to the inside panel to create a little more interest.  I also added a think strip of cardstock along the edge to give the eye a little relief.

Thanks for stopping by!  
I look forward to seeing your entry!
