Autumn Hues

Is the weekend over already? Where does the time go? Thankfully, I found some time to make this card.

I stamped the trees in Versamark and heat embossed them with white powder, and sponged over them and a Post It note sun with the Fall colours, I did the same to some leaves on a strip of white card, but also added some randomly stamped leaves. I embossed some stripes on brown card and laid this by the side of the stamped card with 3D pads on a base. Instead of ribbon, the cards were wrapped with plated raffia of the three colours for a more masculine feel, and the trees and sentiment were added also on 3D pads.

I am entering these challenges :

Buttercup is still with us, although she thinks she is a dog instead of a donkey!? She wont drink from a bucket yet so is still being bottle fed, much to my sister's annoyance as she isn't getting much sleep. I will be going to see her on Tuesday so I'll see how much she's changed over the weekend.

Until next time, thanks for dropping by
