Pollycraft Challenge #107 - *Autumn Colours*

I hope you guys have had an awesome weekend!! I had a long day at work on Saturday, then I went out for my Sunday dinner on Sunday afternoon and got crafty for the rest of the day. A few more commissions and DT cards down, a few more still to go. But we're getting there. I have today off too, then I'm doing a four hour shift tomorrow. So..Another Monday, another Pollycraft Challenge!! ;)

Lemme just tell ya - Paula has been SPOILING us these past few weeks. All I'm gonna say is.. you DON'T wanna miss the BLOG HOP! Be here on Wednesday guys!!

So.. the deets for this week.. we wanna see


Ohhhh yum! I so wanted to do a halloween themed card - but then I got my eye on Sonny Honey Cloud - Poetry and just had to colour her up.

I paired her up with a sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps - how perfect, please?! I have put this card together using papers from Basic Grey Max and Whiskers collection. This just goes to show a line, which you might think has been specifically designed for pets, can be used for numerous other designs. A lot of the papers are simple and generic - and the colours are very autumny! :)

I die cut the sentiment using a nesties label four and doodled and distressed all edges of my paper. The striped twill and bakers twine is from The Ribbon Girl and I added various Prima to the design. My whole image has been coloured using PM's - I have well and truely found a new love for these beauties!!

I have, as always, decorated the inside of the card using the same paper and a slice of white cardstock. I have torn two of the edges on each piece of patterned paper for a bit of a different look.
