Mid Month Inspiration for Crafting Musketeers

Hi Folks
Well it has been a wet and dismal week so far.  Leaving for work in the rain and coming home in the rain is very depressing.  Won't be long before I am getting home in the dark either.  But enough of these depressing thoughts and onto crafty matters.

We are halfway through our October challenge at the Crafting Musketeers so I am popping by to share a little inspiration with you.
Our theme this month is:
Autumn Colours
Our fabulous sponsor this month is The Hobby House who are offering the winner a £10 voucher to spend at The Hobby House.  What a fab prize.

Here is my inspiration project using a pre coloured topper from The Hobby House.

I inked around the edges of the topper and matted onto some brown card.  The papers were in my stash box, not sure who they are by but they fitted in with the autumnal colour theme.  I wrapped some twine round and added some buttons as embellishments.  A simple sentimeent finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to check out the challenge at Crafting Musketeers.  You will also find some lovely inspiration from my talented teamies.
