Daring Cardmakers - October Elemental Inspiration

 Hello everyone.  

Wow, hasn't September just flown by?  I love this time of year and this week's challenge from the team at the Daring Cardmakers is just perfect to inspire your seasonal crafting.  

Shabneez is our lovely host this week and as it's the beginning of the month there is a gorgeous elemental inspiration image to help with your creativity. 

Remember to select at least 3 elements to be featured on your card.
I picked the colours, the brick wall, the stripes, leaves and a cup which the coffee beans inspired.

I started with the background and used the Bricks and Mortar Embossing Folder. I then stamped and die cut all the leaves for the cup using a retired set called Sparkle of the Season.  The cup came from a set called Cup of Tea.  I stuck with 3 main colours to match the stripes in one of the images which were Misty Moonlight (retired), Merry Merlot and Early Espresso. 

And of course, I had to finish my card with a little bling.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend.
