Hi everyone

Challenge 77 launched today over at Crafty Cardmakers. Our challenge for this fortnight is 'Autumn or Autumn Festivals - NOT Hallowe'en' and is hosted by Josephine

Josephine says 'There are always so many Hallowe'en challenges around! So instead of creating a Hallowe'en card I would like to see something that depicts the Season of Autumn, or maybe Harvest Festival, Guy Fawkes, Diwali or some other festival that happens in the Autumn. If your theme is a lesser-known festival, please tell us about it in your post! But remember, this is not a Hallowe'en challenge!'
We are sponsored by

Here is my take on the challenge.

I have made a card for Remembrance Day/Armistice Day which is observed across the Commonwealth countries on November 11th and Remembrance Sunday which is observed as a Religious Festival on the nearest Sunday. I've kept the card simple and dignified to respect this poignant occasion.

I've used Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion Poppy stamped onto watercolour paper, coloured with ProMarkers, then cut out and attached to a glossy black base card using silicone glue to give dimension. I've stamped and embossed a 'Remember' sentiment from my stash onto a further strip of glossy card and then curved this across the card using more silicone glue to keep the slightly domed shape.

Please take a look at the challenge to see what my fab team mates have come up with and whilst you're there why not have a go yourself?

Thanks for looking x
