JustRite Friday Challenge #40 - COLORS OF FALL

This week at JustRite Inspiration they are having a fall colors challenge sponsored by Flower Soft.  I just got some Flower Soft products last week and was excited to try it out!  I chose to go with a shaker card.  They have these cool globes at Flower Soft also!  I started with brown recycled cardstock and stamped a center and border from JustRite Autumn Blessings onto white cardstock with Momento Rich Cocoa ink.  I colored the leaves with my Copics and inked the border with Ranger Anitque Linen and then Spiced Marmalade.  I filled the globe with punch-outs (actually from my Martha Stewart leaf border punch) in several colors of paper and added 2 kinds of Flower Soft (Autumn mix and Shamrock Green).  I used the paper as inspiration for the colors because it reminded me of fall in Oklahoma.
 The green leaf is a Cuttlebug Maple Leaf combo die and emboss set and the vine is Sizzix.  I added a metallic ribbon to match the glittered orange leaves in the paper (it's kinda hard to see that in the photo) and an acorn I cut from Cricut Create-a-Critter.
Here is a close-up of the Flower Soft in the globe and the acorn.  I added Earth Ultra Fine Flower Soft to the acorn top and popped it for dimension.

I also entered in the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut!

Sheri I really like your idea of a shaker card. Kind of fits the idea of leaves falling and a way to remember what fall is all about. In MN. the leaves are almost gone.
