Guest Design Card for Crafty Cardmakers!



Hello everyone!

Vixy kindly asked me when I offered some help if I would like to be a Guest Designer for Crafty Cardmakers just before the challenge blog went live. Of course I had to think long and hard about it! and so here I am, and obviously I said yes! Well, I was never going to say No - was I hehe!! :)

This weeks challenge is Autumn Themed. So I have gone with browns, oranges, lefty greens and a rich red colour. Hopefully I have done the challenge justice!

I have used a Magnolia Fall 2007 Stamp and coloured her using Copics. I then stamped again and coloured and cut out some of the smaller flowers and layered them on top.

I have used Papers from the Bearly Mine Designer Extreme Vol III which were just perfect for this challenge! I matted them on to Papermania Textured Card Stock, had fun arranging them until I was happy, then stuck them down. I popped the image on top and thought the card was looking bare.

I had some pinky/red roses which came on wired stems, so I cut the heads off, I curled the green stems ready to be glued. I coloured and arranged a couple of skeleton leaves, then stuck a larger flowers down, followed by the roses and stems. Three red buttons for the side and a Papermania Sentiment.

Here is a little close up if the image - Not sure if you can make out the little leaves which I have Decoupaged, but I'm sure you get the idea :D

And one of the flower arrangement.

Thank you for popping by. I hope you have fun with the challenge - there are endless possibilities!

Check out the Design Teams cards for more inspiration :D
