Wow!  I don't know about you, but we've been having some really warm weather for November!  We have been enjoying the sunshine and beautiful colors.  I have wanted to make a a shaker card for a long time.  I've watched many videos on YouTube.  I've collected lots of gorgeous sequins and I have a huge roll of foam tape.  So, I finally sat down and made one!

The acorn from the Fall Hall set seemed like just the right image to work with.  I enlarged it quite a bit and printed it out on several pieces of patterned paper.  I carefully trimmed the brown pattern for the stem and the brown leaf pattern to add to the acorn cap.

For the background behind the shaker I used the little leaves from Autumn Wishes.  The orange banner was cut out using the small curved die from Flag Banner dies.  The sentiment was combined from two different sets Simply Said and Tiny Sentiments.  I sponged around the banner piece with a brown ink to make it pop out a little more.  I wanted to add lots of pretty sparkles to the shaker so I used FOUR different sequin mixes.  Green stars, Emerald Isle, Pumpkin Spice and Fall Harvest.  And to add just a bit more sparke, I went over the enter acorn cap with my wink of stella.  I wish you could see it in the picture.

Don't forget to play along with Craftin Desert Diva's November Social Media Challenge!  Tara has added several great fall Digi stamps and there are lots to choose from in the store.  There are three different prizes to be won!  Just remember to share your projects using #cddmonthly.
