A Shaker Birthday Card

I recently pinned a beautiful card by Angela, thinking that it would make a great shaker card.  I loved her mix of a striped frame with those lovely florals. August is full of birthdays in my family, and this CASE of Angela's card will be for my sister.  Thanks, Angela, for your inspiration, I love your style!
