SBS22 First Challenge ~ Fall - Halloween - Thanksgiving

Well this is our first challenge for SBS group 22! As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving this side of the pond, and as I'm a little on the elderly side to go trick or treating, I thought that I would do an autumn card.... otherwise known as fall!
Embossed with copper, verdigris and moss powders, coloured with bronze perfect pearls and over embossed with enchanted gold... not quite sure where the stamps came from, but they were in a set of 4 I believe.

Banning Word Verification Candy!

It has come to my attention how easy it is to get rid of those pesky letters that are so difficult to decipher when leaving comments on Blogs. So now that I know how easy it is, I have removed that obstacle from my blog.
There are some crafters who are so keen to get rid of WV that there is Blog candy on offer!

Double Challenge ~ Daring Cardmakers & Stamp Something - Fall

I really like triple embossing (now that I can do it successfully every time... look back on my blog for the way I do it) and I think that the copper on this image looks quite autumny.
I have just bought a set of Hero Arts sentiments - Get well soon, Thinking of you and Thank you and I love the simplicity of the lettering
Two challenges combined once more.

Triple Challenge ~ OCCC - Humour ~ Friday Sketchers ~ Cute Card Thursday - Pink

I seem to have been out of the loop for a while and haven't posted any challenge cards for ages it seems. I had a short trip to France and had root canal work on my return, but that's not really any excuse!
Sadly the colours on this picture don't reflect the colours in reality, but maybe you can get the idea, I do apologise for the poor image quality.
Three challenges in one card again... couldn't manage any more I'm afraid.
I must say that I empathise with the sentiment on this card ENTIRELY!
If I can get a better picture of this card, I'll edit it later.
Your comments would be welcome, as ever!
