Snorkelling shaker card (Scrapper's Delights image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Can you believe I've created over 900 cards and this is my first shaker card? I absolutely loved doing this but it wasn't quite as easy for me as the lady I watched on Youtube hehe! I used some large glitter and some sea items as well as the gorgeous little snorkeler from Scrapper's Delights. I added a flatter foam tape to him so that he still stood out but not as far as the front of the card (if that makes sense?) I love this bubble paper for the background as it looks like its coming from his snorkel doesn't it?
