DT Card - One Stop Card Crafts

Good morning bloggers - Saturday already - doesn't time fly when you are having fun.

The challenge at One Stop Card Crafts this week is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish, which is a Division of I Did it Creations.  They have a wide range of digital stamps, and paper selections.

This week it is my turn to host the challenge at One Stop Card Crafts,.  I have chosen the theme of Autumn and provided a sketch.

I decided that I wanted to stick with the autumn colours as Halloween is a bit too far away for me at the moment.  I have made an 8 x 8 card. 

The base is covered with a dark green cardstock.  My two panels have both been embossed with Tim Holtz texturez and had Distress Inks in Honey, Spiced Marigold and Barn Red wiped over them.  They are backed with a rust cardstock.  My main panel has been coloured with the same colour distress inks, and I have stamped it with a selection of some of current favourite stamps.  I have cut the spiky mount on the Cricut - I really don't use this often enough.  The dark green leaves have been cut from green patterned paper with my trusty Cuttlebug and I have inked over with Pine Needles Distress Ink to tone the colour down.  The flowers are cut from various dies and put together with brads.  To finish off I stamped some bees round the edge of the green background.  However, I really must remember to follow the sketch more closely!  I made the flowers too big to allow any room for a sentiment ..... Doh!

Please do pop across to the challenge to see all the inspirational work there, and why not enter the challenge as well.
