Daring Card Makers - October Elemental Inspiration

It's Friday so time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme, as it is the first Friday of the month, its a Elemental Inspirational challenge.

You need to use at least 3 of the elements - colour counts as one choice.


I've used the colours, plus the pattern (top row third from left), leaves, recycling (the bottle) and text.


The aqua cardstock was a card blank that I cut down and I used a PaperAtsy oak leaf die to cut out of an old Graze box which I've added some waxed cord to tie them together/  I've used the offcuts of the cardblank as a scalloped pattern with offcuts of a printed paper pad underneath.

The gold dew drops are from my stash and the sentiment is an X Cut die, cut from a scrap of chocolate brown card.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Polkadoodles Challenge - A Little Bit Scary or Anything Goes

Time for a new Polkadoodle challenge and the DT were challenged to make something A Little Bit Scary!

I've made some rice krispie cakes using two of the toppers from the Winnie Wednesday download, layered them onto die cut circles using glittery card that I've had in my stash for years plus X Cut star die cuts, and using orange card I've had in my stash for years too.


Needless to say the cakes are long gone!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 40 - Sponsored by Kinda Cute

Time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge and we are sponsored by Kinda Cute.  The theme as always is

Anything Goes

I've used one of the Unicorns from the set and coloured it up with Promarkers.  I have a lot of offcuts of card stock that I use for card bases so have used one here and layered the image to hang over the edge to make it look bigger!  The banners have been made with offcuts of thin card that I coloured with Promarkers.


Half pearls from my stash and I doodled a line around the edge with a black fineliner pen.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
