CCM #218 Autumn Colours

Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is Autumn Colours. As usual you can enter anything you like, cards, mixed media, home decor, fabric crafts, you name it, we are happy to see it.

Autumn is my favourite time of year for colour. I love the rich hues of reds and oranges. Not so keen on the Autumn bugs though. I am just on the end of the cold virus from hell. I thought it was never going to leave me, for the best part of two weeks I have felt like death warmed over. Today is the first day I have felt half human again.

218 Autumn Colours

I created my birthday card from just a couple of items. For the decorative centre panel I laid down several different reels of washi tape, and then die cut the word birthday into the panel, in effect this would be the waste. The word I die cut out can be saved for another project. I backed and matted the panel with black card and to make the word pop I die cut the word again in white and used the waste from inside the word to add back into the die cut area in the panel. I stamped a Dylusions edge stamp a couple of times either side of the panel, and the word wishes onto a small scrap of white to finish it all off.

I am entering this into:-
