Here is my card.  I decided to make a Shaker card.  I've had the round plastic forms for ever, and just discovered them "again" after tidying up some of my crafting space.

This is the front of my Shaker card, but I changed things up a little.
As you can see here, this is the upper inside panel of my card.  There is a hole in the middle.
I put the Shaker part of the card on the inside bottom panel.  I found some adorable pink heart and stars glitter which I added to the Shaker part.
Here is a side view of my card.  You can see that I've used a feather, some crystals, flowers, pearl sprays, some ribbon and a Ballerina charm.  After I had it all put together I realized that I had nowhere left to write a note or anything. See below what I came up with.
Here is the back of my card.  I used the little bit of star paper I had left to make a small envelope for a 3 x 3 note card.
So here is the little note card I made to put inside the envelope. 

Here is a close up this adorable Write A Message Tilda from the Lost and Found Collection (LF07) 2014.  I just love her wink!
This is the inside of the little note card.  I kept it very plain and simple.
