Autumn Style

Well it's time to dig out the warmer clothes ...Autumn has truly arrived in style in the UK this week, there's definitely a nip in the air and rain, rain and more rain everywhere.  My heart goes out to anyone who's homes have been affected.



My card today definitely has an autumnal feel and is for an October birthday.  I have used a mixture of Marianne Design Dark Vintage Paper, which has been distressed round the edges slightly with my craft knife and Walnut Stain distress inks.

The image is also from Marianne, one of the lovely vintage cutting sheets.  The Bird on the Branch has to be one of my fave Marianne design dies. I have shadowed him by using a darker card behind the top layer.


The leaves are very old stamps which have been stamped in Sepia Versafine and coloured with Antique Linen and Aged tea Dye before adding distressed stickles glitter.  Stamped sentiment added.

My card is entered into the following challenges:-

Nothing but browns and creams used....

I love my layers all the time ....


Have a good Sunday everyone (I think it may be a stay indoors day today) and thank you for visiting.  Suzanne ~x~
