Shabby Chic Fish Bowl Shaker

Hi All!!
It's that time again for a new challenge at 

Our theme is "Fun Blooms"
and using the inspiration photo below!

Our sponsor is "The Cutting Cafe"!
I love this sponsor as they have the most fun cutting files to create with!

to create  a "shabby chic" fish bowl and turned it into a shaker card!
I printed the bowl twice, once on white card stock 
and once on a heavy weight vellum.
I like the heavy weight vellum, as I thought it gave it watery effect!

I tried something different, so instead of using foam tape around the edge
of the bowl for the shaker, I stitched all around and added my sequins,
then sewed the top shut. It seems to "shake" just fine.

I decorated the top with various flowers, leaves and such from my stash!
I actually think it makes a pretty decor piece!

Now, head on over to "The Shabby Tea Room" and see what beautiful
creations my teammates have to show you.
I have to say, it to was fun to see all the different ways this fish bowl was used!
As long as you are there, why not join in the challenge with us??
You could win some cut files of your own from The Cutting Cafe!!
