I am entering this card into 5 Challenges:~
Moving Along With The Times 'To Do' Challenge ~ to use 3 items from their list ( I used no1 ~ 2 papers, no 2 ~ button and no 6 ~ leaves);
The Sugar Bowl Sketch Challenge;
Sarah Hurley 'Autumn' Challenge;
Crafty Catz No 51 -'Stitching' Challenge and
Craftilicious 'Autumn/Harvest' Challenge.
I coloured my image with PMs; used by Nellie Snellen Oval Die to cut frame on pearlised dark brown paper; matted and layered My Minds Eye papers; applied ribbon with white stitching and sewed on 4 buttons; used my Marianne's Dies to cut brown leaves to tie in with 'Harvest' and 'Leaves' then tied the same ribbon around them to look like sheaves.
I am very pleased with the overall look of this card so it will be flying its way to my dear old Mam later in the week - she looks forward to getting her cards in the post and has a massive collection which she uses as and when required as I don't actually write on them but stick a note or letter inside so she CAN use them again. Talk about recycling - or are we both mean Scots! ~He He!
