SeemaCrafts Challenge Blog

WOW get me, two posts in one day! 
(This post was meant to be published earlier, however I seem to have messed up the scheduling lol).

Pinch, punch, first day of the month and no returns! 
Seeing as today is the first of a brand new month, that means one thing....a great new Challenge Theme over of SeemaCrafts Challenge Blog
'Autumn Colours'.

The entry doesn't have to be autumn themed, but it must be made with those gorgeous autumn colours
Rich reds

This month you can win a £10 voucher to spend in the wonderful SeemaCrafts Shop!!! 
Seema, the owner of SeemaCrafts, makes wonderful embellishments as well as having some gorgeous stock in her online shop.
 She is generously giving this prize as we have reached 150 followers YAY

This month, I wanted to make something that was totally not autumn or season related, but using the gorgeous colours. 
Here is what I made....

I matted and layers using some textured Matt gold mirri card and some wood look paper from a limited edition paper pad. 

The digi image was one I found in my computer folders, however I don't know who the designer is...if you do, please let me know so I can update my blog to give them some well deserved credit! 
I am so so pleased with how the image came out. The colouring looks full of depth and well blended...(if I do say so myself). 

I used some peel offs which I haven't used for agesssss. 
I also cut some bunting with a gorgeous Joy Crafts die. 

I wanted to achieve a card that was perfect for younger boys, and I think I did that. 

I really hope this has inspired you to pop over to the SeemaCrafys blog to enter their Challenge....what a fantastic bonus of the £10 voucher this month....

Thank you to everyone who visits my blog and shows me continued support.
