Autumn Ballet

Good morning everyone. A quick post from me as I am off out for the day. A quick trip to Sainsburys then off to the coast where there is a craft shop I visit occasionally who have 20% of everything this Bank Holiday weekend. Hubby is buying me a Grand Caliber for my Birthday. I know it is just over a month away but 20% off is too good a bargain to miss. Wonder what other goodies they have in store, mmm.

Our challenge this week at Whoopsi Daisy is Autumn Colours. I love Linnie's ballerina images and have made an 8 x 8 card. I added texture by embossing some Core'dinations and sanding it and adding a large flower with a spacer and brad and some ribbon. The small flower has been coloured with Promarkers, as has the image. I have used the fab sketch at Card and a Half who also want texture.
