Give Thanks Card--Imagine That! Digis and My Sheri Crafts

This month Imagine That! Digi's Progressive challenge, we have a lovely fall basket with a few variations and some wonderful sentiments. There are outlines and precolored images included, and I chose this version of the pre-colored basket with "Give Thanks" above it. It's so perfect for Thanksgiving!
After sizing up and printing out this digi using my Silhouette Design Studio software, I cut it out with a WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die. Then I die cut 3 layers of adhesive-backed foam with the same die but using the smaller rectangle from the set to cut out a window for the image and shaker pieces. I used some clear cardstock from Papertrey Ink for the window and some fall-colored seed beads, leaf-shaped sequins, and miniature cut-outs of the harvest basket that I did using the print and cut feature on my Silhouette for the shaker pieces. I embossed my 5X7 card with a Paper Studio embossing folder, running it through my Cut 'N Boss twice to emboss the whole length of the card.
