St Lukes September Challenge

Wow! September already. I can`t believe how fast the weeks are going.It`s time once more for a new challenge at St Lukes Charity Card Challenge and this month we have a `Card Buffet`.
Any theme and any image but you must use 4 - no more, no less, just 4 items ( you can add a focal image and a sentiment too) from the following list;
1,   Patterned paper
2,   Ribbon
3,   Gems
4,   Pearls
5,   Charms
6,   Flowers
7,   Punches
8,   Buttons
9,   Embossing
10,  String

Here is my card to give you, just a little bit of inspiration, don`t forget to check out the rest of the DT for their fabulous makes.

I have used no1, Patterned Paper. Two papers from Papermanias Chatsworth Collection matted onto wine coloured card.
no2, Ribbon, soft green tied in a bow.
no4 Pearls to finish along to top left and bottom right corners.
no6, Flowers, handmade using a marianne designs Die and wine coloured card.
There is also some embossing around the sentiment ( Personal Impressions) and the scalloped circle nestie.
See how easy peasy it is?
And don`t forget you can donate your cards too to raise much needed funds for this very worthy cause.
Tara and her hubby worked very hard during the bank holiday weekend selling your donated cards at the august fayre and raised a staggering amount of money, but the hospice needs more. Please put the blinkie on your blogs and let as many of your blogger friends as possible know about this challenge. Thank you.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne...xxx
