2 Posts for Many Challenges - Burgundy, Gold, Green and Cream - Leaves and fall palette

I didn't use the wreath inspiration from Colour Create because my friend's birthday was the other day and he loves those colours so I used pumpkins which was for the ABC Challenge blog...which I missed(S$%#!) but it still works for the colour pallette and Crafty Creations! I stamped and embossed the fall display and the Happy Birthday (used burgundy embossing powder). I placed that on cream cardstock and then placed it on top of the green and placed it on this really pretty burgundy cardstock that is shiny and has gold in it too. I stamped a pumpkin(for ABC and in honour of Halloween) and all these leaves which I embossed in gold, green and burgundy and placed that around the edges and highlighted with gold sticker borders. Happy Halloween Everyone!! PS I don't think that burgundy paper came out too well in the photo..bummer - Night time - Anything Goes
- Anything Goes

I missed out on the fairy Tale Challenge at Simon Says last week and I love Fairy tales so I was inspired by last week and added the night time for the Stampman Challenge and Simon Says and Dream Valley had anything goes which can also go for the next card above. I used glossy black card for the background. On black paper I used the powder in bronze and 2 different purples for the flower card...which my hubby said it looks like one could smoke it and be happy:)...goof! It does look like one of those happy plants though. I used stickles for the flowers and the edging in purple and dark gold and I used stickers for the border which i coloured in purple and added some stars. I think it has a magical fairy tale look it don't ya think? Onto the next card...
