Crafters of Faith October Challenge


Hello everyone!!!. End of the month again and the Crafters of Faith have another great challenge to share. This month our hostess was Sharon and she challenged our group with this:

Sharon's favourite season is Autumn..."In Southern Ontario it is quickly making its appearance and where I'm fro the colour of the changing leaves can be quite spectacular. It's so inspiring... I just love it! Autumn also includes my most favourite holiday celebration... Thanksgiving!. It's hard not to love a holiday that calls on us to give thanks for our blessings. I realize not everyone around the world celebrates this holiday and our friends in the U.S. don't celebrate until November, so for this challenge you can choose to make either a card for Thanksgiving or a thank you card for someone who has been a blessing to you. Please use at least 2 designer papers and 1 embellishment, and most importantly, have fun!



For this card I used:

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and Really Rust from SU
Designer Paper: it is an old DP from SU and I can't remember the name (this are my old scrap that I'm using for the Use it Tuesday challenge...also the orange in the pumpkins).
Stamps: Maybelle R.O. (Whimsy and Stars Studio). Pilgrim digi.
Accessories: Scallop square Spellbinder, Leaves punch and branch punch from Martha Stewart, Pearls from the dollar store, Paper Piercing tool kit from SU, Copic markers and the flower dies from MFT.

Thanks for looking!!!

Carolina, WOW!!! Your card is beautiful! Love those flowers... and the image is just too sweet. I really need to try sewing on a card - I keep telling myself that, but haven't brought the sewing machine out yet - yours is fabulous!

Glad to know you through Crafters of Faith!

Carolina, this card is gorgeous! I love the colors and the designer papers you chose. I love the added touch of the paper piercing, too. What did you use to color your little pilgrims with? The color is outstanding. Thanks for playing along with me this month.

Whoops, never mind about my question ... I see that you used copics. So well done and the shadows are in all the right places! Great job!
