Hello all! Today I've an Autumny sort of creation even though i don't want to wave goodbye to the Summer. Leaves are starting to fall off the trees and rustling into garden corners and this fine digi Oak Wreath from Faith at Designed 2 Delight Digital stamps is just perfect. I've enlarged it to make it into a shaped card, placed some freebie d/load paper from Shabby Princess Vintage set on the backing, stamped corners, swirls and sentiment with Walnut Stain Distress ink, added gold card candy and punched out purple butterflies. The Penny Black hedgie is from the Hugs set and comes with him holding a bunch of flowers but I swapped this with my own hand drawn single oak leaf and popped onto foam squares. Challenges entered are the Penny Black at Allsorts Punch Away, Penny Black #117 purple, cream & brown, Polka Doodle Shaped card as is Dare U 2 Digi stamp, Bunny Zoes Crafts #3 Vintage as is Stampin for the weekend #46, Fab n Funky is 'Whateva', Charisma cardz is Try something new (mine is the cut out frame wreath), and Crafty Sentiments #34 Use a Digi. I make that ten in total and could have entered so many more if I found more hours to spend in blogland...bye for now all!
