bee sweet Carved Pumpkin Face Shaker Card

Summer is almost over and stores have Halloween/Autumn items in stock.

Made this Shaker style Card using:
1.  Lawn Fawn stamps - Bear wearing a Bee costume,
   candy corn & punny/whimsy sentiment 'bee sweet'
2.  Poppy Stamps pumpkin die I won recently

Hardest party of making this was putting the pumpkin die pieces back together to make the shaker card.

Added a wobble to back of Bear/Bee. Added doily paper. Added to corners candy corn cut with hexagon/honeycomb die which I thought complemented the Bee.

Supplies List 

adhesive: foam, Scotch ATG
Crayola: pencil colors 
Die-Namics: die - Sequins - yes I handmade my sequins
doily: piece of Wilton white paper 
Enamel accents: black - used on Bear/Bee antennae
ink: Delicata Golden Glitrz
Lawn Fawn: stamp -  Critters in Costume
paper:  cardstock - black, black glitter, green, orange, white, yellow  chevron pattern
Poppy Stamps: die - Carved Pumpkin Face
recycle: plastic from a pkg - used on shaker card part
Spellbinder: die - Nest Classic Circles - used for shaker part, 
   Hexagon/Honeycomb - to cut out Candy Corn,
      figured the Honeycomb shape complemented the Bee 
Stampin' Up: punch - Modern Label, Word Window 
stickles: white used on bear/bee wings 

tool:  MISTI
wobble: added to back of Bear/Bee
