DS4J Mid-month October Challenge

It's mid-month posting for the DS4J October Challenge.  Our theme this month is "Make Your Own Background".  Now you might be thinking, "I'm not good at making backgrounds".  Making a background doesn't have to be hard.  You can use a doily, a die cut or an embossing folder(which is what I did) or any number of things.  Team B has created a lot of pretty inspiration for this phase of the challenge and I hope you will join us.  Be sure to visit here for more inspiration and information.

This is my design team card.
Card Supplies:
5X7 card base
Background - Poinsettia Blooms from AG Holiday Seasonal Embossing Folders.
Image - Poinsettia Candles by Margaret Kieser of Digistamps4Joy
Colored with Promarkers
Wink of Stella added to the candles and poinsettias for some sparkle.
Stickles added to candle holder and centers of poinsettias.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I always enjoy your comments.

It's hard not to see God as the colors of fall start emerging; the beautiful golds, oranges, reds, so many hues and shades.  I love Fall, the cooler nights and pleasant days.  Not too hot and not too cold.  Fall is our respite from the hot days of summer, here in the south.  How marvelous are your works, O Lord.  Psalm 8:3King James Version (KJV)
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
God Bless You!!!! Peggy
