Autumn Colours with Crafty Cardmakers!

It's new challenge time over at Crafty Cardmakers and this time the theme 
as chosen by our lovely Marg is........


My favourite time of the year is Autumn/Winter.....I especially love the Autumn
colours, the darker nights, snuggling on the sofa, hot chocolate.....ooh, I could go on!
For my make I started with a kraft card base, added a chocolate brown layer
then some distressed paper layers. I raised the topper on foam pads, added the die
cut leaves, some string for extra texture & finished with some Tim Holtz chit chat
stickers & some faux gems. The patterned papers, the image were freebies with the
Making Cards magazine & die used for the leaves came free with the Papercraft
If you fancy joining us this time we welcome any & all makes.....just so long as
you stick to the theme & if you're low on inspiration we can help you with that too!

Thanks for calling & for any comments you might leave.
See you tomorrow.


Don't forget, my FOR THE KIDS challenge is here.
