Autumn Skies

Bit of a different card for me today, no stamped image!!!! (and that wasn't even the challenge lol!) the challenge was to make a card or project using autumn colours which I think I've covered here lol, I got to use some more of my favourite Vintage Carnival Papers and a sketch challenge from months ago that I never got round to doing at the time but I found it scribbled on a bit of paper when I was tidying earlier in the week and as soon as I saw it the card practically made itself. So easy to do, this the whole thing took about 15 mins start to finish (and that included trying to find one of the papers that had been mis-filed under Harvest Spice tut tut, think I need to have a sort through of the papers lol) Anyways I inked the edges of all the papers and the edges of the card with bronze ink so it has a bit of a shimmer and then added some buttons to the tree to finish it all off.

Supplies: 'Vintage Carnival' Papers by Bo Bunny
Extras: White Card, Bronze Ink Pad, Buttons from Stash

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge...

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Autumn Skies (Autumn Colours)

Hopefully this week I'm finally going to get round to decorating my mini wooden drawer units that I've had for several years and still haven't got round to decorating them, and I was looking at Pami's blog and the last couple of days and she has been making the most gorgeous gift boxes (here) and (here) and has even decorated a jar to keep all her flowers in, and I'm now itching to decorate them, not going for anything as fancy as Pam's but I'm sure it'll be an improvement on the bare wood lol

Right well I'm off to try and pick out some papers so I can make a start on decorating the drawers this week... wish me luck... XOX

Hi Helen Ann, that is a different card, but I like it. Simple and crisp design, it really doesn't need anything else. Hugs, Frea
