Creepy Mushroom - A Day For Daisies/Incy Wincy

Good morning all! 

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. 

Ooh! Before I get down to business - Happy Birthday Mum!

This week over at Incy Wincy Designs we have a colour challenge for you...

Chilli Color - Design Seeds®
and our sponsor this week is A Day For Daisies and you can win a $12.00 GC (equivalent to 3 digis)!

Here is my challenge card...

A Day For Daisies has some of the most gorgeous digi-stamps. I fell in love with this creepy little design and as the colour challenge has an autumnal theme to it, I knew it would be perfect for a Halloween card.

What you need... 

Digi-stamp: Creepy Mushrooms - A Day For Daisies
Card stock: brown, red, white
Ink pad: Vintage Sepia - Versafine
Promarkers: Firewood, Pine, Tawny Owl, Winter Berry
Baker's twine: red
Button: red

What you do...

Download, print and colour the mushroom image. 
Stamp a simple sentiment near the image.
Cut out so that the edges look torn and ink the edges with the Vintage Sepia.
Create a 12cm square top fold blank in brown card, mat an 11cm piece of red card centrally, so the top is in line with the fold of the blank.
Make a long banner in brown card and fix to the left of the red panel.
Mat the image onto the blank, near the top.
Add a red button to the bottom of the banner and finish with red twine wrapped and tied around the blank.

I think this makes for a unusual and different Halloween card; a break from the normal colours of black, orange, purple and lime. 

Why not head on over to Incy Wincy Designs and have a look at the fantastic creations my teamies have come up with?

I'll be back later with the amusing little card I've made for my mum. Until then - TTFN xx
