Fall Shaker Window Card

Today is another Craft Junkie Too Design Team day. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love being on Tracy's Design Team!! Her awesome assignments are just a small part of it.  The challenge for this week is:

 I'm not sure what to call it, but for now I'll call this card a Shaker Window Card. : )
As you can see, it's a shaker card. I put two layers of foam tape in between two layers of Recollections Clear Window Sheets. I them sandwiched the plastic shaker between my paper window layers. All paper is from Me & My Big Ideas specialty card stock called "Harvest".

Inside the shaker, I added some leaves from Serenade and some Recollections microbeads to help the leaves move inside the window. I added three brown brads to each side.

I filmed a video tour of this card. I just knew it would be hard to appreciate through pictures only.

Here you can see the card shape. I love this tag shape! :)  I cut a little hill by hand from some more paper from the same paper pack. 

Here you can see the velvety texture of the green hill.

This little sentiment is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and a Studio G stamp.

That's it, please head over to Tracy's blog and see what
