Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Colours of Autumn

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT card


 It's Bridget's turn to host the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen:

'Autumn Colours'

I went for rich oranges and browns...and thought that those colours would suit a male I inked up 'Birthday Beagle' by Whipper Snapper. The papers are by BasicGrey, from the 'Offbeat' and 'Hopscotch' pads...I embossed the plain one using my Craft Concepts 'Hexagon Illusion' folder. I distressed all of the edges using inks and my distressing tool, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiments are from a Studio G set, and the ribbon is from Hobbycraft.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies...please visit the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

We also also have a DT call running until the end of September, so if you fancy joining our merry little band of crafters, add a link to your blog to the linky in the sidebar on the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge blog.


It's my blog's third birthday today...Happy Birthday Blog! lol
Anyway, I'll be celebrating with some candy watch this space!

Great card Helen. The colours and image are just right for a male card. Loved your Penny Black card too. My internet is so bad at the moment I can't get about as well as I'd like!

Enjoy your weekend,
