Garden Watering Can

Hello and Welcome back Dies R Us Friends.  I am Barbara Campbell, your host today!  I have a fun shaker card to inspire you for your card making.  You can make this a shaker card as I did, or just a card with out the shaker window.  It's your choice and your creation.

To make this card I started with a Swiss Dot embossing folder on white card stock.  Then I die cut the watering can and the mushrooms and leaves.  After I figured out where I wanted the watering can to be on my card, I used my exact o knife to cut a triangle in the panel, just under the spout.  I put two layers on fun foam on the back of this panel and then added my sequins and beads for my shaker.  The whole panel was then added to the base card.  Next I arranged the mushrooms and leaves that I had die cut and colored previously.  I think mushrooms need water too!  Anyway, they look like they do.  I drew in some green grass for the mushrooms to rest in and anchor them in the scene.
Here are the dies that I used.

I used a die for the watering can that I had, it is similar to this one from Frantic Stamper
