Crafting When We Can Challenges #53 - Seasons (image, item, colours, sentiment)

Our wonderful sponsor for this Challenge is Krista from

We were able to choose our own images for this Challenge and I chose 
Sweet Oklahoma.  It seemed like an image I could use alot with the English weather we have.  Spring, Summer and Autumn birthdays jump into my mind. 

The Theme for Challenge 53 is

image, colours, item, sentiment

I used red, green and gold card stock from my stash and embossed the red and green card with a Sizzix Texturz plate, went around the edge with a Copic marker and matted it onto the gold card.  The image was coloured with Copics and Promarkers.  The raindrops were from a £shop but I can't remember which one.  They are body gems but work just as well on paper.  For my sentiments I used the dreaded peel offs, I don't know why some people turn their noses up at peel offs, I think they can serve a purpose the same as any craft item and it's where a lot of us start on our crafting adventure.

Hop over to the CWWCC blog and show us your Seasons themed creations.

Yes Poppet, I fully endorce your thoughts that your image will be very useful in our English climate - indeed I relate to her being blown around as this morning I popped out to my garden and was almost blown back indoors by the high wind :-) Your colours are gorgeous and I love how you have embossed and layered the background cards. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)

I love the colours you've used on this card and it's a great layout. You're right about the image - it matches the weather here perfectly today. I've just been blown back to my car in the supermarket car park. Phew. Hazel

Poppet, this Autumn colour combo is gorgeous! Love the image and totally sympathize with her fighting the brisk Autumn wind. Have had to battle that myself lately, lol. Thanks for playing along with us this week at OSAAT, hope to see you back again soon.
