October Challenge: From the Craft Room

by Tasnim


We are halfway into October, and quite late on posting our October challenge. However, it is better late than never!

This month's theme: From the Craft Room: Chocolate Delight

October challenge

Here is a simple card that I made based on this photo:

October card

I gold embossed the lace image from our Lace Up set on to a chocolate colored card stock. I simply love this combination! I wanted to leave it as is, but decided to add the satin bow for a focal point. The sentiment is from the Magnolias For Her set, and is embossed in white on a strip of kraft card stock.

  • Use at least one Altenew stamp
  • Link back to Altenew October Challenge in your post
