Quirky Crafts Challenge 22- Anything but a card and some Autumn Colour

Caro has chosen the challenge theme this time and she has chosen Anything but a Card with Autumn Colours..
I love all the Autumn Colours, not so ken on the rainy windy weather that comes with though!. I especially love the really deep reds that appear on the leaves and the ivy in my garden just before they drop. When you say deep reds though I always think Poinsettia. Luckily the sponsor for the challenge is Robyn's Fetish, and they just happen to have a lovely poinsettia stamp that was just crying out to be decoupaged.

 As it is anything BUT a card i decided to make the poinsettia stamp into a cutlery holder for my Christmas Table. This is number one of many more to come! I enjoyed making this though as I normally opt for a card, so the challenge for me was to come up with something different.

Regular followers of the Challenge blog will have noticed a Design Team call after last fortnights challenge. That is because I have made the decision to leave the team at the end of the year. So come on you regulars....throw your name in the hat......
