November Challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

We've survived the first (early) snowfall, Thanksgiving and Halloween and now it's November and a new challenge at Crafts Galore Encore. This year is going very quickly indeed!
This month we are sponsored by The Fantasy Art of Nikki Burnette.


This artist is new to me, so I had fun looking through and choosing an image to use. I wanted to get away from Halloween images as I've done so many lately and strangely I ended up choosing 'Arden' which is the banner image!
I have used the following products to create my card:

  • Canson Illustration cardstock
  • Papermania cardstock
  • Flowers & Berries from my stash
  • Sizzix Stampin' Up Embosslits 'Beautiful Wings'
  • Darice embossing folder 'Retro Circles'
  • Wink of Stella clear
  • Sakura Gelly Roll white
  • Promarkers - Spice, Coral, Soft Peach, Blush, Mustard, Gold, Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, French Navy, Aegean, Sky Blue, Tulip, Warm Grey 1-5, Antique Pink, Pastel Pink, Moss, Pear, Olive, Pumpkin, Denim, Midnight, Sunkissed Pink, Cinnamon & Buttercup



 I used a torch on the dress to better show the Wink of Stella glitter effect!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Inspiration Destination - #109 AG
  2. Simon Says Wednesday - AG
  3. World Wide Open Design Team - #15 AG
  4. Creative Fingers - #119 AG
  5. Get Creative - #51 AG
  6. Crafty Catz - #344 AG w/twist die cuts/punch
  7. Crafty Cardmakers - #176 Explosion of Colour
  8. Craft Your Passion - #336 AG
  9. Crafty Awesomeness - November AG
  10. Classic Design Team Open - #08 AG
  11. CCC Digi Creations - #60 Happy Anything
