Pear Tree Designs last challenge - Autumn

This is my last card as GD for The Pear Tree Designs challenge blog.  I have been asked to stay on as a proper team member and normally I would love the chance to be able to design for another team, but at the moment my day job will be taking up most of my time up until December and I don't think it would be fair to say yes and then not be able to give it my all and put myself under pressure. I am sorry I won't be with you girls - but I will still follow what you are doing and enter the challenges when I can. Thankyou for the opportunity of being with you.


So the theme this week is autumn and I managed to get my card to fit in with both the challenge and the blog name - I used a pear which I downloaded and covered with crackle accents. I used nesties for the scalloped circle to back it on and DI rusty hinge and vintage photo. The wishes card is from 7 gypsies and the autumn backing paper was downloaded as well. The green dotty paper is from Summertime Designs and I changed the colour in PSE. The ribbon is from my stash.

Challenges that this card will fit are -
Charisma Cards - autumn colours
Digi Doodles Shop Best - Orange
Tellens Place - 2 patterned papers
Town Scrappers - Distressing
Secret crafter saturday challenge - Distressing
Kaboodle Doodles - Colours of Fall
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Fall

Hi Brenda. The colours are beautiful and I love the torn edges and the lime ribbon adds a fantastic splash of extra colour.

Would suggest you access the Michaels web site and search for the most local store . . . then view the local stores offers and select print coupon before you head off!!! Yes, it really IS that simple! ENJOY - just got an MS round the corner set of punches for $12.50 or about EIGHT POUNDS!!!
