Mama Elephant October Challenge

Hello blogging friends!

I'm getting back into the card making after slowing down a bit to concentrate on my new job. It's amazing how you kind of lose your ability to create after not doing much for a few weeks.

I've been meaning to do the new Mama Elephant monthly challenge for the last couple of months so I was determined to have a go at the October challenge where the theme is 'anything goes':

Narelle has created just the kind of layered sketch I like over at Freshly Made Sketches so I'm linking up over there too.  I've used a couple of different sets - 'Around we Go' and the spotty border from 'Basic Borders'.  I coloured the big wheel using distress inks, white embossed the little carriages against a black background, added a strip of washi and the stamped border.  I do love this set but I always seem to reach for the big wheel rather than the carousel...note to self: use the rest of the stamps in the set!

Anyway, that's all folks - have a relaxing Sunday!
