Good morning all.
I had a fab weekend, meeting up with friends at the stamp fair at Port Sunlight.
We don't have any decent craft shops near us so it's great to be able to peruse the stands and get those choice items plus a few bargains. There was an added bonus in that I got to chat and catch up with a couple of blog friends.
Anyway back to business with a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. This time our theme is -
AUTUMN THANKS or BOO! (Halloween)
I went with the first as I have no one to give Halloween cards to. This is my card for your inspiration.
I used the photo over at Card Concept and the layout at CAS(E) this Sketch. CAS on Friday also have the Fall/Halloween theme.
Picking up on the rustic neutrals, I cut a few ovals and made a pumpkin, edging the panels with Weathered Wood DI as I went. The stalk was cut from a scrap of brown card and the leaves from a scrap of green. The completed pumpkin was set on a die cut circle of shimmery charcoal card, an echo of the clock in the photo and element on the sketch. On a panel of linen textured card, I placed a panel of kraft card shaded with a white pencil crayon then embossed with a brickwork Sizzix EF. Above this I wrapped some jute string and slipped a thank you tag embossed in silver pearl EP under the circle before securing it on the panel. I think the neutral tones of the finished card work well as a masculine card.
So for more inspiration, check out the rest of the team and then why not join in.
