DDSC #76 - Autumn

Back again, this time with my card for this week's challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges where our theme is Autumn - leaves, colours, images, flowers - anything that reminds you of this time of the year.

This week, I got to play with another of the gorgeous fairy images which you can find here in the shop. I have used lots of lovely Autumnal colours and some fab glittery backing paper which DOES NOT show up in this lousy picture :0(  The seam binding has been coloured with a Promarker, to match. The flowers, branches and edge of the image have all been distressed with an inkpad.

 Close up of the image

Inside of the card 

Medium - Promarkers
Lace & Seam Binding - Wild Orchid Crafts
Flowers - cut on the Cricut
Branches - MS punch
Papers - First Edition "Desert Blooms"
Inkpad - Adirondack Brights "Mountain Rose"
Brads - stash

Once again, thanks for looking and don't forget to take a look at the rest of the DT's lovely creations. Also the September Special is still running in the shop, so why not pop over there and browse all the gorgeous images available. Remember, you get two entries into the challenge if you use one of these!!

Also I need to let you know that this challenge will run for 2 weeks and we will be back on 6th October with a new challenge and some new Team Members. The new members will be announced on 29th September. Although it will be great to have some new members, this sadly means we will be losing some of the current ones :0(    I just want to say, it has been a joy and privilege to have worked with you very talented ladies and I shall miss you - take care of yourselves xx

Hugs and Happy Crafting
Denise xx
