You blow me away

(Please scroll down for my All That Scraps October
preview DT post!)


It's time for a new Cupcake Craftroom challenge and this month the theme is 'anything goes in autumn'.  This can be any theme or occasion.  the card will have an autumn 'feel' so could feature  leaves or autumn colours, a halloween card, or any other occasion for this time of the year.

This month the DT are using the new Winterberry collection that features beautiful berries in autumnal colouring with some hot pink for a more contemporary feel to the papers.  Here is my project using a selection from this very funky cool set...




As soon as I saw this set, I knew I had to use
MilkCoffee Stamps' Michelle in Hot Air Balloon with lots of MFT Die-Namics cloud dies.   The sentiment is from the Lil' Inker Designs Pinwheel sentiment set - a perfect match!

I hope you can join us this month, it's a nice easy one!  I'll be back tomorrow with day 2 of the All That Scraps October previews!







I am entering my card into the following challenges:
