The Card Concept Challenge 60 -Chevron Pumpkin

 This week at The Card Concept the theme is 'Chevron Pumpkin'. It seems so odd to be looking at gorgeous Autumn colours when here in New Zealand we are seeing the new shoots of Spring.

I really was inspired to do a shabby card with this inspiration photo. I love that Freestyle Collage gives me the freedom to work in any style. For this card, I have bought together wire, metal, florist net, twine, and paper. I love the chevrons so have included embossed and stamped versions of those.
The metal button was very shiny and didn't photograph well so I dabbed it with ink and Versamark to knock the shine off it.

This is fabulous, Karen, and a wonderful take on the challenge inspiration. Your ability to create groupings of elements never ceases to amaze me.
