Papercraft Star

A few weeks ago Tracy from Papercraft Star contacted me and asked if I would like to Guest Design for them ... Would I!!! 
I am thrilled and honoured to join this team of wonderfully talented ladies this week ... 

Take a look at this inspirational photo ...


Isn't that something? 
The challenge is to make a Thank You card ... Well, this picture so inspired me I made a card and a little something to go with it ...


... a little "Pumpkin" pin cushion ... 


I love working with neutral earthy colours and the pumpkin just evolved ... using burlap glued to CS which I hand cut to shape and added twine to give it more 'shape' ... I'm not sure if you can see but it is all glittery too ...


For the pumpkin I used a styrofoam ball ... I cut the bottom off so it would stand ... then covered it in the same burlap, twine and glitter and a stem made from corrugated cardboard




I loved doing this ... Thank you so much ladies from Papercraft Star ...

I hope you will pay a visit to the blog and check out the fabulous DT work and why not join in this week's challenge? 
There is always a prize on offer and every week you can get a freebie on the blog from a fabulous digital shop The House across The Bay

Thanks ever so much for visiting and leaving your lovely comments 
Have a lovely day
