C.R.A.F.T Challenge 20

The challenge at C.R.A.F.T this week is to create something using this picture for inspiration, thanks to Suzi from the DT for coming up with this:

and this is my DT card:The background is cuttlebug embossed and the raised bits inked with magenta and green ink.

For the flower I cut out a flower shape then embossed it using part of the cuttlebug Floral Fantasy folder, and rubbed green ink over it. Finally I added garden twine with buttons threaded through it.

The prize this week is kindly donated by Claire, some mini brads, Basic Grey papers, a few sheets of hand coloured leather and some lovely handmade stickers:

I am also entering this card in another challenge - By the Cute & Girly - it's a new monthly challenge blog that's just started, and their first theme is "Autumn Glory".
