Snail mail

Today's card is inspired by fall, which is the theme of the newest challenge over at Catch the Bug, where I'm a Guest Designer.

The image is called "Snail mail" and can be found here. I colored it with Promarkers, fussy cut it and placed it on top of a bed of leaves made with a set of dies from Lawn Fawn.

I chose papers from Doodlebug Design and a stamped postcard from TPC as background. I machine stitched with red thread aroind the edges.

The sentiment is cut out from red craft foam with a Dienamics die. I added a bow of yellow seambinding ribbon decoarted with a brad.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Fab 'n' Funky - #232 Anything With Ribbon
2) Moving along with the Times - Doggone it (or any animal)
3) City Crafter Challenge - #232 Leaves
4) Ooh La La Creations - Use a Bow

    Hei

    Kjempe flott kort i herlige høstfarger.

    Du spurte meg om hvor ord stempelene som jeg hadde brukt på mitt siste blogginnlegg, stemplene kommer i fra Kort og Godt:)

    Ha en fin fin lørdag:)
