Watch For Falling Leaves!~~ My 1st Shaker Card

Hi everyone!
Fall is in the air....woke up to it being 45 degrees and only warming to about 66.
Just last week it was 80. Guess that is what we get in Buffalo :)

I have been seeing lots of new techniques and designs around the blogging world and have written them on my to do list....
try a shaker card is on that list and I can now cross it off as having tried it :)
These are so much fun and I know I will be making more!!

Here is my card....a fall card for sure and pretty clean and simple!

Ok here are the details!!
I used this super cute Bugaboo image~ Oz Scarecrow and colored him with my copics
E30,31,33,35,37 and 47
G09 and R29

I cut several different color leaves to add to my shaker to make it look like the leaves were falling. The leaves were cut using SCAL and sized at .5"

The sentiment is from My Craft Spot~Happy Fall and was stamped on a larger leaf cut at 2.5".

The paper is from Cloud 9's Seasonal Paper Pack and I layered it on green cardstock and my kraft card base.

The shaker part is a kit I purchased which made this card sooooo easy to put together.
All I had to do was color my image, fill the shaker and attached to my base. The plastic already has glue on it.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Crafty Sprouts~Sketch (I used most of the sketch...just eliminated the center border)
My Craft Spot~ Fall Leaves
Cards Cupid~ Anything Goes
