Shaker Style

Happy weekend to you! I have a tiny lull in my morning and thought I'd post today, since I neglected to do so yesterday. I have a JustRite card to share with you that uses the Antique Autumn Tags One set. I created a sort of shaker with vellum, sequins, and my sewing machine. I think it creates kind of a cool backdrop to the sentiment.  I added additional leaves using    Spellbinder's dies.  
I colored my mini leaves and acorn with Copics, cut it out by hand, and added glossy accents to make it a bit more substantial. 

I have a busy weekend ahead of me!  Hubby is taking me out tonight for my birthday and hasn't spilled the beans on where he is taking me.....so that's always fun! : ) Tomorrow we are headed to the north side of Chicago to volunteer our time at Misericordia.  It is a group home for children and adults with mental and physical disabilities.  
Be sure to check back on Monday for a giveaway!  (It will be pretty big....cuz it's......ahem....a special day! 
; )
