Challenge 86 - Bonfire Brights

Hi! It's Sharon here and it's my first challenge! I've chosen Bonfire Brights for the theme this month. 
I love Bonfire Night, the bright reds, oranges and yellows of the bonfire and the multi coloured fireworks.

I made an ATC for the challenge. The papers are from the fabulous Journaled365 kit which I printed out and coloured with Aquatone pencils. The sentiment is from Sarah's Stars Stamp set. Couldn't resist a bit of sparkly glitter as sparklers are the highlight of my bonfire night! (Please make sure you all stay safe on Bonfire Night by following the firework safety code-sorry, that's the nurse in me speaking!)

I hope you can join us in our challenge this month and can't wait to see your creations!
And while you're here, don't forget to check out the inspiring things the DT have made.

For my Bonfire Bright card I have used the pennants from the Hello Sunshine for my bonfire/firework and the leaves from Be Amazing which have been coloured and stickles added
and the stars from Wish upon a Star which were embossed then I added assorted gems.

I've used the chevron stripe stencil  with texture paste on my journal background, the Doodle Home stamps set and stars, sequins and journaling cut-outs from Septembers Kit club.

I made this card using images and sentiments from Sarah's Doodle Home stamp set. The designer paper is from the Monthly Kit Club which I love! Punched stars, a memory box fence die and candy dots coloured using a black Promarker was added to add more detail.

I created a bookmarker in Photoshop using Sarahs Spook Street kit. I love this kit and love that it works for me all year around! I used the adorable Angelica Strange on it and added in lots of elements from the kit, keeping it in theme with bonfire bright colours - so much fun!!

I made a shaker card using stamp combinations from Sarah. For the background I used the Large Texture stamp while the sentiment is from the Sentiments Stamp. I also stamped the stars from the Wish Upon a Star Girl stamps. I highlighted the bonfire color yellow orange which are the stars. For the papers, I used A Few of my Favorite Things Vol.1 8x8 paper collection   

I used Sarah's My Favourite Things kit to create this layout, the edges of all the papers have been distressed using an emery board. I also added some black Stickles onto the Thickers to add some extra sparkle.

I used the new Woodland Wonders Under the Stars digi kit to make this pretty card.

I have used Sarah's 'Few of my Favourite Things' kit box from August to create this card.
 I was inspired by the bright colours that reminded me of fireworks, and the embers that glow at the end of the evening on bonfire night.


I used Sarah's latest kit to create this bright, funky card.

I used Ranger Inks mixed with water to create the background.

I cut into the papers to make a banner and cut out the small flowers.

 I used Sarah's Butterfly Stamps and sprinkled some sequins.

I have used star paper from the Back to School kit and woodgrain paper from the Say Cheese kit. The sentiment is part of Sarah's Handdrawn Roses stamp set

I have used Sarah's Halloween Edition Doodle Doll Stamp Set to create the checked background and the Good Witch, which have been heat embossed.  Together with the crackle background using the
