It's GDT time at DICC here

Over at Desert Islands Crafts Challenge there's a new itinerary to work with.

3.Fluffy Animals
4.Pastel Colours
5.For Mom
6.Ribbon and Bows
8.A Shaped Card (not square or rectangle)
9. Fancy Edges
10. Brads or Eyelets

This challenge is being sponsored by Rick St Dennis and the lucky winner gets their pick of some images from his Etsy Store.

I chose #'s 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 & 10 along with the Lady St John Smythe. Coloured with promarkers.

Autumnal colours for those mums among us in their autunm years and a little bit off the norm from your run of the mill mothers' day cards.
The DP is from MME sparkly halloween papers, chocolate brown with cream and orange spots, which just goes to show Halloween can be all year round!
Our mum here has been fussy cut out and attached to a piece of core-dinations cs after running through a Darice embossing folder and inking with wild honey DI.
You might just make out the glamour dust dotted around in appropriate places. Well she is going shopping at Harrods!
The ribbon, bows and flowers and chocolate glitter card layered on blue

The sentiment
The letters stamps individually with copper on burnt orange cs then highlighted with fine liner to add depth, the die cut secured with brads. 

I know the regular DT over at Desert Island Crafters have worked their magic and are just waiting for those entries into the challenge to come flooding in.
