Sending you sunshine

This is my first of three DT posts today, you can find my Ooh La La Creations card HERE.

It's time for a new challenge at Bearly Mine Designs and this month we have a Autumnal Colour challenge for you. I have made a card using a topper from the LOTV Vintage Boys Art Pad, I just added a little extra shading.

This is the colour palette that we would like you to use:

I really struggle with colour challenges and this one was no exception, I've just about included all of the colours by using one of the papers from Donna's fabulous Just Plaides Digi Set.

I punched some little flower pots with a very old Carla Craft punch along with a Marianne die cut fence and the sun is a Lawn Fawn die.  The sentiment is a Personal Impressions stamp on a Lawn Fawn stamped and die cut cloud.

We have two fabulous sponsors again this month:


Prize: £15 voucher to spend in the Bearly Mine Designs Shop

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge 79 - Use your punches and dies
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations Challenge 107 - Anything Goes/Memories
Pile It On Challenge 35 - Punch It Out (Flower Pot punch)
Aud Sentiments Challenge 114 - Any Sentiment Other than Birthday
The Corrosive Challenge #207 - Let's Hear It for the Boys
The Squirrel & The Fox Challenge 76 - Spring or Autumn (Autumn)
As You Like it Challenge 35 - Favorite Season and Why (Autumn because it is quite often dry and sunny but not too hot + I love Autumnal Colours)
Just Us Girls Challenge 256 - Wild Card

Make sure you pop over to the Bearly Mine Inspiration and Challenges Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Autumnal Colour challenge.

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
