Cute Card Thursday

The theme for this week on the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog is....

Autumn/Fall

The challenge this week is to make an Autumnal themed card.
Very apt for us , lots of leaves on the floor , a bit crisp in the mornings and the nights are drawing in now. I love this time of year and this year it's even more fun for us as Milly loves to catch the leaves that either fall off the trees or the ones that we kick up for her. She looks so comical trying to catch them! Anyway enough chatting and onto my card....


I've used all Basic Grey Mellow for this card and layered them up onto brown or olive card and then stitched around them. I think the sketch I've used is one from Tiets, I've had it a while so I'm not too sure, but if it is thank you Tiets. The image is a penny black stamp and has been coloured in the usual way for me with promarkers. I added some corners to help it "blend in". To embellish the card I used 4 square gold brads in each of the corners and some prima flowers with one of the same brads in the middle.

I don't very often put sentiments on my cards as I store them in a box and then when I need one I then add the sentiment for the occasion.

If you would like to see the other Design Team members work (it is stunning!) and join in with the challenge , you'll find the blog here
