Crafting Mojo has returned!

I have been struggling of late to get my crafting mojo moving!

Over the weekend, I went searching for inspiration in all the blogs I follow, and guess what ....... I found it!

This card came together in stages - I think I must have had several ideas in the back of my mind.  I am a bit out of my comfort zone with this one - a few too many embellishments for my usual style, but I just had to find a way to use the lovely paper and leaves I won from CreataliciousChallenges#1.

I have also been intending to submit a card for Stamping Vacation for so long!  Now that it is a weekly challenge, hopefully I will be able to participate more often! 

The three I picked for this card were:
2 - Red, cream, brown
4 - metal (brads)
5 - Leaf

Paper flowers highlighted with buttons cut from old clothes.  I had to cut the shank off to make them lay flat.

Metal brads used to highlight smaller flowers.

Magnolia image, Tilda, hand coloured with watercolour pencils and highlighted with kindy glitz.

This cards meets several challenges, which are listed below.

Roses on Paper Challenge #22  - orange, brown & green + sketch from Just Magnolia
Just Magnolia sketch 26 (minus strips)
CBI#51 - fall colours using cuttlebug (spellbinder nesties)
Stampin for the Weekend - Orange, brown & leafy green
Saturday Challenge - Autumn colours
Stamp Something - brown + something

It is so nice to be crafting again!  Now I just need to get my sewing machine back out (it was packed away for a party !!) and finish off my sewing challenge from CraftMad
