Guy Fawkes Inspired Card

Well...I'm a few days late. ;D Guy Fawkes Day was Saturday, and this week at LIM, the challenge is to use red and orange--bonfire colors!!!

Here's what I came up with~

What do you think? When I first stamped the black onto the orange panel, I was afraid that the card would turn out too Halloweeny instead of autumnal. But I think it works with the berries!

Speaking of the berries--that's where the red it! I used blender pens to color in these lined images.

Close ups~


Yep, that's glitter--to add a bit of frost to the image! I don't know about you, but it's been a bit chilly here in Kansas for the past few days! :)

I hope that you like my Guy Fawkes card! I had a blast making it! Hope you can join us for this fun challenge! Happy stamping! :)

I just love those frosted berries and the circles punched to show them off! It doesn't look a bit Halloweeny.
