MCT Designer Challenge ~ Dancing Leaves!


Happy Thursday friends!  Today over at My Creative Time it's Designer Challenge!  The challenge is to make something with a pumpkin on it. 
Before I get into telling you about my card, I wanted to apologize on not being around lately or visiting your blogs.  With my daughters upcoming wedding it not only takes some of my crafting time.  It's been using a lot of my creativity too!  :)  Ok enough of me! 
 
 
One of my favorite decorating blogs gave me inspiration for this card.  The project she made was actually a picture, I took the same concept to make a card.

 
I used a distresser to rough up the edges of the layer with the words.  Of course no project of mine would be complete without some chunky glitter and hemp!  I've been loving the look of white pumpkins so purposely left in the color of the paper.

 
Recipe:
 
Extras
Papertrey Ink cardstock
Teresa Collins pattern paper
chunky glitter
thin hemp
Stampin Up ink
Tim Holtz ink
Heidi Swapp Distresser
 
Be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see what the other gals have done!!!

Your card is so beautiful. I love how you used all the stamps what a unique and creative idea I love it never would've in a million years have come up with this. You are good really, really good. Love the colors you used and the shabby chic look and of course your hemp just the perfect touch. Girl I don't think you've skipped a beat with your creativity at all you definitely rocked this challenged and did it with passion and it shows.

Liz I love your card. I'm hoping you will see this question - what type of adhesive do you use for your chunky glitter? I have always loved that you use it but not sure what kind of glue.

Good luck on the upcoming wedding. I'm sure it will be beautiful and FULL of creativity!

Thank you so much for your sweet comment! Of course I will see your question, I always read all comments! For larger pieces I use my small xyron, inserting it upside down so the sticky is on top. If it's just around the edge I use zig 2 in one glue, however since it's blue I use it sparingly. For the pumpkin, since it white I used the xyron. I hope that helps you in your crafting adventures!
