Autumn at whoopsi daisy

Morning all! How are you? I do hope you are well! I'm alarmed at how fast this year is going - in less than a week I'll be doing the great North run for Asthma UK. Fingers crossed that this time next week I'm telling you that it all went well!!!! Thanks to those of you that have sponsored me - and if anybody else out there thinks they can it would be wonderful - here's a link to my justgiving page. Don't worry if you can't though - times are hard - we all know that! And if you do visit - it looks like I've only got £90 - but I'm actually close to my target - I've got sponsor forms here at home plus the money I made from the coffee morning so I'm close to target!

Today at Whoopsi Daisy there is a new challenge starting - this time its all about autumn and this is the card I made for the challenge:



I've used an acetate wrap on this card - that's a fairly old piece of foiled acetate from hunkdory. The image is from sheet number 425 which you can get here. I've coloured the image in with promarkers and fussy cut before adding her to the acetate wrap. Underneath the wrap is some shiny paper that I'e embossed using a Sheena Douglass embossing folder. I've also added ribbon to help keep the wrap and the card together.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Penny'spennyschallenges: Spooled items

OSAAT:onestitchatatimechallenge Use a digi
Crafters Companioncrafterscompanion: Embossing


Thanks for dropping by today and for any comments you leave - I really do appreciate your thoughts and the time you spend visiting.

Big Hugs

Rachel xx

  4. Rachel, this card is amazing - when I first saw it I thought you'd embossed a highly polished metal sheet. The effect is breathtaking. Every technique and element you have used works so well in this very Autumnal card. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
