Happy Father's Day shaker card

Hello everyone,
This Sunday is Father's Day here in Norway so I decided to share a card that I made for my father in law.
The sentiment says "Gratulerer med farsdagen" which means "Happy Father's Day" in Norwegian.
And sending him a shaker card will hopefully make him smile.
I am very happy that this day coincide with the Share Handmade Kindness Challenge that Jennifer McGuire is organizing this month.

I don't know if it's just me but I always have had problems with making cards for men!
So I decided to go for a blue and with flowers pattern paper.
 I used light blue sticker letters for the sentiment, and I think it fits very well on the card. In the shaker I went for micro beads in the colors of the flowers.

I would like to participate on the following challenges:
Just Keep on Creating, November challenge
Simon Says Stamp, monday challenge, so glossy
Crafting by Designs, Anything goes November edition 

I had fun making this card and I hope you like it!
Thank you for visiting,
Olga
