Fall Shaker Card

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well. My husband started a new job on Monday and we're adjusting to his new work schedule. One of the mentors the Lord gave me after my mom passed away used to frequently say, "Adjust is a must!" How true this is...even in good things like a new job. The Lord brings change to our lives for many reasons. Sometimes it's to help us grow and learn to trust Him more. Our Word Art Wednesday focus verse this week expresses it this way, "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!" Romans 11:33 To have knowledge is to know the facts and wisdom is the ability to appropriately use use those facts. Our Lord has both knowledge and wisdom in a limitless supply. How thankful I am for that!

Have you discovered the relatively new website Paper Craft Romance? If not, you are missing out on a wealth of paper craft resources, tutorials, product reviews, free printables and a LOT more. The owner, Deedee, is a good friend of mine and previously owned the Deedee's Digis online store. If you become an email newsletter subscriber, you are given access to a subscribers-only free printables section. I am using on of those printables for my card today.  I colored the image with Copics and then used it as the background for my shaker card. I used a variety of sequins in my shaker including my new favorites Assorted Moonshine sequins by Simon Says Stamp (SSS). SSS is our wonderful sponsor for this challenge. They are a fantastic one stop shop that features most, if not all, of the most popular brands. I was able to purchase the Lawn Fawn banner dies and the Echo Park 6x6 paper pad used in today's project from them. They have quick shipping too. :) A few more Moonshine sequins topped with Rusty Hinge stickles finish off the card front.

I used two of the double-sided patterned papers from the Echo Park I Love Family 6 x 6 pad for the card front and the window border. A piece of stamp packaging is the clear panel for the shaker window.

I used the papers for a little interior decorating as well.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to Rubber Stamps Challenge #217 - Make Your Mark (I used my Copics)
Craft Your Passion Challenges #335 - Anything Goes
Let's Color Linky Party #13 - Anything that has been hand colored
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes (optional feature of Lawn Fawn Products - I used a Lawn Fawn Banner die)
