Hello everyone, each Monday there is a new challenge at My Craft Spot this week is challenge #111... that's a lot of challenges, and there is always something fun to challenge you and get your creative juices going.
This weeks challenge...
Favorite Technique
what is your favorite technique?  Share your project with us for this weeks challenge at My Craft Spot.

I had so much fun making this shaker card, I included two of my latest favorite techniques ... Coloring with Copic Markers, and Sewing using my sewing machine. 
I used several supplies from My Craft Spot:
Stamp Sets: Jar Basics, Jar Full of Fall and Happy Thanksgiving
Metal Dies: Jar Basics, Ornate Labels
Crinkle Ribbon: Caribbean
Sequins (brand new product): Chocolate Sundae
All products can be found -HERE.
I'll have a video of how I made this card, just as soon as I edit it. :) ... coming soon...
I hand cut this banner, the phrase is from the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set, here you can see the machine zig-zag stitching too. I also added the Caribbean crinkle ribbon under the jar lid.
The jar was stamped using the Jar Basics stamp set, and cut out using the Jar Basics metal dies. My acorns are stamped from the Jar Full of Fall stamp set and colored using Copic markers. Inside the jar is the Chocolate Sundae Sequins.
The brown strip of cardstock that I used a border punch from Recollections.
I used a double layer of craft foam (fun foam) to make the shaker box, and a piece of clear acetate for the window, I cut it using my Jar Basics metal die.
This is the inside of my card, the phrase is again stamped from the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set, then added another colored acorn.
