Autunm Card

For the first time ever I have been able to plan & create a card to meet 2 challenges!  The card I created was A5 size, which is unusual for me, I prefer smaller cards.

This card was created using paper from the Making Cards Magazine, Brads (topped with Candi) and a Papermania 'Paper Flower'.

The papers met the 'Autumn Colours' required for the Craft Us Crazy challenge as well as the 'Recipe' for Ruby's Rainbow Challenge

In addition the 'Recipe' called for Brads/Buttons x 2 as my brads did not match the theme of the card, I added 'Candi' to each in keeping with the theme (I hope this is allowed).

The 'Recipe' also included 1 Flower and the Craft Us Crazy challenge was a Favorite Embellishment - at the moment I love the Papermania 'Paper Flowers' as they are in white I have used my ProMarker to colour the flowers as required (this one is Caramel).

Flower straight from the pack...

After the flower met with my ProMarker (Caramel) it was transformed.
I hope you enjoyed my card.
