SSS STAMPtember Blog Hop - Autumn Blessings

Good morning! I'm excited this morning to be part of an amazing blog hop celebrating the new Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember release!


Since my package contained only paper and dies - I decided to put together a shaker card with no stamping, just using the beautiful new dies!


I love the new Birch Tree Window Wafer Die - as well as the font and delicate lines of the Autumn Blessings Wafer Die - don't they go together lovely?!?!?


I layered some of the new Glimmery Cardstock in Sunshine behind the die as the back of my shaker, then filled it with some of the new 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh - such a fun size for shakers!


A lovely bit of fall pattern paper finishes up this card!
