Autumnal colours....

Hi all
It is Tracey here.... It  is my turn to post  a project for your inspiration .The Dt are featuring Festive Foliage and burlap this month for you .Autumn is  my favourite time of year  so I really enjoyed making this card using an autumnal colour pallette
I have used a sizzix bird cage die and a stampin up bird punch.I also used papers from Trimcraft first edition Rose pad.The frame around the birdcage is a die from spellbinders.I distressed the paper edges using a Tim Holtz distressing tool.The flowers are from Wild orchid and I used burlap for the leaves which I die cut . The stuning ribbon was given to me as part of my Pack from Donna ,it is such beautiful ribbon to work with and my Trusty Craft-Dee Bowz bow making tool which makes a bow look amazing in seconds.

I finished it off with a chipboard word Faith which was sent to me by my team mate Gail and added  a cute birdcage charm and some gems..

challenge time at Craft-Dee Bowz

It is challenge time again at Craft-Dee BowZ ... Wow the weeks are flying by ....The theme of the challenge is as always " Anything goes with a handmade bow."
The Dt have a theme for the month of Festive fall using burlap for foliage so for my DT project I have made this 8x8 card using Graphic 45 papers  and ephemera cards from the time to flourish paper pads.....The image is a digi image from the paper shelter ...
I coloured the image with promarkers and distressed the edges of the image panel with antique linen Tim Holtz distress ink.I used a sweet Dixie die for the frame around the image.The flowers are all from mulberry crafts.I used burlap for the foliage which I cut with a TH bigz die.The beautiful bow was made as always using my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker ...It is my go to bow maker every time as I know I will create a stunning bow in seconds with ease ....this beauty on my card has 3 loops !!!
