Autumn Charm!

Whoops...I'm a bit late this week...must be all those Christmas cards I seem to be making at the moment!

Anyway, I decided to try and be clever again this week and combine two challenges into one card....over at  Cute Card Thursday they want to see our projects that feature a charm...either shop bought or homemade. You can see the lovely DT examples here http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/2009/10/challenge-81-so-charming.html. While the ladies at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge want to see projects with an autumn colour scheme, again the gorgeous DT cards can be found here http://thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/2009/10/challenge-53.html


So, thinking that I usually make very girlie, pink cards I had to put my thinking cap on this week! I've had some charms that someone gave me last Christmas and I've never used, so I thought I pick my favourite one and start there. This is the design i came up with.....

...it looks a little wonky because of my stupid scanner, but I hope that makes it look more rustic! I'm not 100% convinced about the colour scheme, but I do like the charm. I picked it because it reminded me of a spider's web.

So, a walk on the wild side for me....colours that I'm not too sure about, but hey it's good to try different looks out once in a while!

No doubt I'll be back to my girlie-self very shortly!

Enjoy!
