Autumn Leaves

Thanks for all your lovely comments on last night's post. If you haven't read my exciting news then look below. This week's challenge at Pocket Full of Posies is Autumn Leaves so we want to see leaves and of course flowers on your creations this fortnight. We are lucky enough to be sponsored by Craftbrulee so hope to see lots of you joining in. There are several Autumn challenges at the moment, must be the weather, so you can combine your entry too.

As I've made a few Autumn cards and I had this pic of me in New England I went with a scrapbook page. Luckily I'm hidden in the gorgeous leaves, lol! Normally I use a whole sheet of paper for my background but used the peach card a the background for a change. Papers are HOTP Mixed Jewels, K&Co Hopscotch and Papermania Hampstead. An MS border punch has been used on all the papers for symmetry. I added some leaf stickers and die cut word. The die cut leaf has been inked and faux stitched to match the faux stitching around 2 sides of the page. I punched the flowers from the same papers and added some pearls.
I am also entering this into the following challenges:

Tuesday Taggers Here comes Autumn
Simon Says Autumn
CRAFT Fancy floral
Totally Papercrafts The great outdoors
