Autumn Blessings


Hi, Today my card is for a challenge at Joan's Gardens. I love her challenges because they really do make me think out of the box.
Friday's challenges was as follows
Create a Card using something from nature
I have my Pumpkin and the vine
Create a card using several layers
My base, dp, another card stock layer, spellbinder Fleur DE Lis, deckle rectangle, 5 layers
Create a card using glitter

Glitter is one of those things that is very hard to capture in a photo! I you look real close you can see the green glitter. I punched the top and bottom of my Ivory deckle rectangle added scor-tape to the back and added glitter to the punched area.
Created a card using a border around the card
I thought my Fleur De Lis would be enough until I read the challenge again, it says to create a border around the card not the image. What to do now???? Most of you know I do not own a lot of punches I have a few, but not anything that would go with card. Then it dawned on me why not use some rick-rack. So that is my border.
Very late for me tonight, I had a meeting at work about the new job. Can you say trial run.
I will visit with everyone soon I had to get these two projects done. Just barely in time I might add.
Hugs
Colleen
