AUTUMN LOVE – Bunny Zoe’s Crafts October Challenge

Hello everybody!

Today I’d like to show you a card made for the new challenge at Bunny Zoe’s Crafts. I was invited to be a Guest DT for the October challenge and what’s more, Nikki, the owner of Bunny Zoe’s Crafts asked me to choose a theme! How cool is that!!!

So the theme for the October Challenge is AUTUMN LOVE ! I love Autumn - vivid colours, falling leaves, fiery pink of the sunset.....And to add something different to the theme, I added in the Love element :-)

As a Guest DT, I could choose a free stamp from her store! Nikki is so generous and I tell you, there are so many gorgeous stamps there, that it was really difficult to choose from, lol. I finally picked Brother & Sister from Magnolia Cozy Autumn 2010.

I had so much fun creating the card and colouring the image, they’re so cute! I hope you like my card!

Don’t forget to stop by the Bunny Zoe’s Crafts challenge blog to see the beautiful creations of the DT! I hope you can join in this month's challenge for a chance to win a fabulous gift certificate or a Guest DT position!

And now for my good news.....

A few days ago, I received an email from Nikki, asking me if I would like to join Bunny Zoe's team every challenge! I didn’t have to think for a long time, I said yes immediately! I’m so happy and honoured to participate and be among the very talented Bunny Zoe’s Crafts DT. How lucky I am!!!!

And here is my card:

I spent quite a lot of time creating the sentiment! It’s computer generated and all letters were cut out with a circle punch (a punch to make circles in sheets of paper to be put in a binder, lol) then distressed with Wild Honey & Rusty Hinge inks. Then I printed larger circles, cut them out by hand as I don’t have a punch of that size (not easy to cut such a small size, lol), distressed with Aged Mahogany ink and covered with Burgundy Stickles. Both circles are attached together and then mounted on 3D foam circles.

I'm entering my my card to the following challenges also:
