remember this ...


My entry today is for seven challenges.

I have used this fabulous sketch over at Whiff of Joy Monday Challenge, together with my WOJ image.

At One Stop Craft Challenge, the theme is 'Autumn inspiration'.

Tuesday Taggers have a theme of 'Shades of Autumn'.

CRAFT Challenge have provided an inspirational autumnal photograph.

Gingersnap Creations have 'Harvest' as a theme.

'Autumn Glory' is the first challenge theme at By the Cute and Girly.

Whilst Crafty Calendar Challenge also have a first challenge theme of 'Autumn'.

I have had these gorgeous papers on my desk for a few weeks now, together with this stamped image. I always knew that I would use them together and was just waiting for the opportunity to do so.

Here is my piece:

You will no doubt recognise the papers as being from the My Mind's Eye ~ Bloom & Grow ~ Grow collection. These papers were originally issued for the Spring market but I think they work perfectly for Autumn also. I can say that as I never got around to using them in the Spring. I used Just Stripes, Falling Leaves and Funky Vines. I distressed the edges and added a dose of Stickles.

The image is Elisabeth Bell ~ Windswept. OK, yes I have just realised that this EB stamp was not issued through WOJ but through Sugar Nellie. So I guess I am out of the competition! However, I've got this far so I guess I'll just have to carry on! At least I got the designer right!

The sentiment stamps are by Pink Paislee. I stamped each out on to a piece of fabric. For the 'Harvest' one, I stretched it over a large button, for the 'Remember This' I stretched it over chipboard. I added some stickles to the edges.

You may see in the top right corner, I tore the card, then laced it up with some Kreinik metallic.

Thank you for looking.

Hi Keeley

Sorry but I am a bit slow in commenting as I have been away for two weeks and only just returned.

What fantastic autumn card - I really love it.

Your image is just perfect and matches your papers so well.

Great distressing and I love the tiny bit of stitching so much. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you also for taking part in the very first "By the Cute & Girly" challenge. I hope you play along again next month.

Love Jules xx
