Autumn Love

I'm really excited and honoured to have been invited to join the fabulous team over at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge as a guest designer for the months of September and October, well you all know how much I love House Mouse so I'm sure you will understand how thrilled I am.

The theme for this fortnights challenge is - Autumn Leaves, make sure you pop over the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog for more details and to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and great prizes.

I used an adorable image and papers from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Triple CD collection.

I apologise for the poor picture quality, my husband has gone to India for two weeks and taken my camera (it's his really), so I had to use my son's and it is very different - I just can't seem to get the colours to photograph..

I embossed some burgundy card stock, and die cut some leaves using my Cheery-Lynn Designs Small Leaves dies, I then added two wooden heart buttons and some burgundy twine.

I have decorated the inside of my card using an insert from the CD.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Animal Antics
Crafty Little Fairies Challenge - Cute 'n' Cuddly Critters
Brown Sugar Challenge 58 - Animals
Creative Inspirations Paint - Inspired by: Autumn colours
