Sweet Thang

Ok so the theme I had in mind for this one was the harvests of autumn. Being an allotment holder in the not too distant past I was obviously thinking harvest in terms of things I had grown. But I also wanted to make a card that could be used for a birthday, if required, as I always seem to be short on birthday cards.

So here is what I came up with:
I layered some papermania Christmas vellum over a textured red card blank. I cut a fancy frame from a spellbinders nesting die set and stamped a jamjar onto it from a Creative Impessions stamp set free with Creative Stamping magazine. I also stamped a raspberry onto the label using Boofle red ink. The iage was coloured with promarkers. I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto the red die-cut label, using Stayz-on ink and drying with a heat tool. I layered these onto the card base and finished by adding some gems. A nice clean and layered card this time.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

City Crafter - #339 Gold Finger
Melonheadz Friends - Harvest Blessings

I would also like to share my latest beaded creation with you - a knot bracelet:

I would like to enter this for Polkadoodle's not a card challenge.

Thank you for looking,

I will be moving back home, with the internet also, next week, so I should be able to produce more creations to show you again :)
