DCC and Friends Midway Inspiration

There is still time to enter the current challenge  at DCC & Friends as it runs until November 20th. There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs. We have two sponsors this time, so, two overall winners. Firstly we are sponsored by Creative Expressions, the fabulous Sue Wilson has donated two A5 stamp sets. Visit her blog at PartiCraft and secondly PaperCraftJunkies, Where Tracey is offering 4 of her digis of the winner's choice. There will also be a "Top Three" who will be awarded badges. So, plenty of opportunities to win. 
Visit the blog to see more inspiration from the team and check out the showcased entry.
The theme is "Autumn to You" and I've made another card to give you some midway inspiration.

I started by cutting an 8"x8" card blank into a circle and inking the edges with Distress Ink Tea Dye.
I then used a Spellbinders scalloped circle die to cut the backing paper.  Both the leaf backing paper and the circular topper are from a Hunkydory kit from last year. I punched two holes in the leaf paper and threaded organza ribbon through before attaching to the base card.

I die cut a mat from some russet coloured card for the adorable little hedgehog topper and the Hunkydory sentiment from the same kit. I just love this image of the hedgehog, he looks so comfy and cute tucked up in a bed of leaves.

I fixed the sentiment to the bottom right of the card to enable it to stand and added a small piece of die cut waste and a pearl. The finishing touch is some Candi round the scallops.
These chilly nights are just perfect for staying in and crafting, the perfect opportunity to make something for the challenge.
Remember that your entry can be any crafty make as long as it follows the Autumn theme and be sure to collect your Treasure Hunt letter for an added chance to win a crafty prize.
