Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Glittery Gourds!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

For my card I started with some circle gold glitter card stock that I die cut into a circle.  I die cut it again with a rectangle die cut to create a window.   I created a shaker using several colors of sequins.  I used mostly fall colored ones, but I added a few clear and white irridescent to coordinate with the frame.

Next, I sponged some scarlet jewel ink onto some stampers select white card stock.  I die cut the Bountiful word die using the MIM:  Color Pop Autumn Kit. I added some leaves along with a pine bough from Holiday Greens.  I finished with a few burgandy sequins to top off my leaf cluster along with some wink of stella on my word for added shine!

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs 
for more inspiration!
