The second challenge over at 'Just For Fun' Challenge Blog started on the 1st of the month.
Half of the Design Team made projects for the start of the challenge, and the other half of the Design Team have made projects for half way through the month as a little extra inspiration.
Just For Fun Challenge Blog is just what it states on the tin....Just For Fun. Some months we will have prizes, that have been donated to the Challenge Blog, and some months we won't.
We do have Badges that the winners and top 3 can place on their blogs to show that they have been a winner on our blog.

I have to say, the makes of the first half of the Design Team, were absolutely amazing. I had a high standard to live up too.....
So......He is what I came up with......
I picked a polkadoodles image from one of their CDs. I thought the image went well with the rustic look I wanted to achieve with the card.
I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir pens. I have to say that I am really pleased with how this image came out. I tried to use darker colours around the edges of the image areas, to give it more dimension.
I diecut shapes to match the card blank I had in my stash. I used a matt ribbed gold card as I thought that gold mirri would look too new and would take away from the tone of the card.
I got out my distress inks and leave stamps and got to work on the card base and the edges of the layers.
The leaves were made with a punch and embossing set. I inked the main leaf and then inked the edges to give them an autumn dried look.
I put it all together and used a roll of hessian ribbon that I have had for a while. I have looked for this ribbon everywhere as I am running out and wanted some more, however I cannot find any.
I hope this has inspired you to go and have a look at the Challenge Blog and join in with the challenge.
We have a prize this month, which was donated by the wonderful Marie Richardson
