Autumn is here


Hello everyone,


Would you believe that its taken me a whole week to create an Autumn card?! I think because you have so much choice it became a bit overwhelming for me.....well thats my excuse anyway......I have a pile of stuff that didn't make the grade....now I know how Pamellia feels :)


Anyway, at long last here it is. A big thank you as always to my bestest bloggy buddy Ingrid as she supplied some of the little bits and pieces I have used on the card that I have then gone on to alter.


The lighting is terrible here today.....time for a lightbox I think. I used mainly oranges, reds and greens for this so I hope it fits the challenge themes okay :)










I am entering this into the following challenges:


Love to Scrap,number 38-Anything Goes here

Pan Pastels,number 22-Frame It here

The Mixed Media Card challenge- Autumn Colours here

The Mixed Media Monthly challenge-Colour Challenge here


Distress inks,markers and stains,crafters workshop stencil,distress embossing powders,Art Journey stamp.

Hope you like it
