Quilt Shaker - Pilin' on Autumn

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Autumn Colors and/or Theme.

The frame is a rubber stamp from Repeat Impressions. I stamped it in Memento black on linen-textured paper; I traced all the lines with a Recollections pen and drew the stitches by hand. The image is colored with Copic markers. I cut out the middle of the piece to create a shaker card. I used scrap plastic for the window, and placed the sentiment sticker directly onto it. I filled the shaker with sequins from Paper Sweeties and metallic leaves. I used white foam to pop the shaker. The background is made with textured cardstocks; I added more dashes & some lovely ribbon.
