March Shoebox card

Our March shoebox night is only a week away.. and I didn't have an idea yet. There are times when it seems to take me forever to come up with an idea... and then... it sometimes takes a long time before I can create the idea that I see in my mind.
Well, I finally came up with something for this month... a shaker card. I used 2 stamps that were part of a $1 set of stamps. The shell stamp I used on the medallion is a match to the shell on the decorative scrapbook paper I used for the front panel. I didn't want to put too many beads in the shaker pouch, but it looks like I should have added a few more.
The yellow strip across the bottom was created using a cuttlebug border, and inking the raised image before inserting the card stock and embossing
