September CCC

The options were endless on the September Card Chain Challenge organised by Deborah - here were the sketch and colour palette.
As you know... I LOVE orange and russet tones... so I played along with the colour palette and sketch (a little less LOL!!).  Here is what I came up with to send to Rikke. (She has received it ... so now I can post!).
I used the brand new digital kit from Hero Arts called Basic Tree - available here.  I printed it out, cut it with Spellbinders Labels One and used blending chalk around the edges.  I then really enjoyed colouring it with the colours from the colour palette.   I am entering this into this month's Hero Arts Challenge - "Everything Autumn".

I matted and layered and added the sentiment from HA Clear Design Anytime Messages.  Added machine stitching, embroidery floss and one of Jane Beljo's wonderful fimo buttons.

I received this wonderful card from a HA Flickr Buddy - Joy (dustypenny) in the mail yesterday - isn't it just beautiful.
It has the most amazing crackle effect on the leaf.  I got some fun bits to play with in the envelope too.... thanks Joy.

Another wonderful Card Chain Challenge - for more information and the full reveal check out Deborah's blog here.  She would love for you to join in - it really is wonderful getting a card in the post from somewhere different in the world each month.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day.
