Good morning all. Can you believe this wonderful weather we are having, we brought ourselves new garden furniture this year and I quite expected not to be able to use it but it is in constant use woo hoo. I love taking my book out and laying on my swinging hammock with it, it is so relaxing. In fact yesterday after my trip to the Summer Crafting Show I slept for nearly 2 hours out there lol.
Anyhow enough of my garden talk, today is the start of a new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly and this month we have a colour challenge for you. We want to see your 'Autumnal Colours'. This month we are sponsored by Di's Digi's who have given us a $10 voucher for one of you wonderful winner's.
For my card I use the only papers I had that were remotely Autumn like from the First Edition 'Blank Canvas' range. I used one of my first ever Sugar Nellie stamps coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then added the lovely Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die cut along with a new border die by Craft's Too which I brought at the show on Saturday. The border has little bows embossed in it but they don't show in the photo, it would of been better to of cut it in white and then inked it after embossing, next time! Just a few pearls added to finish it off.
