Autumn is ...

This is my card for this weeks Less is More challenge, I'm nice and early this week - the theme is Autumn's Bounty.


I heat embossed some card stock with a selection of autumn coloured WOW embossing powers and then die cut a selection of leaves with some Cheery Lynn dies, the acorn is a Clearly Besotted die and the ferns are a Punch Bunch punch.


The striped element is an Impression Obsession stamp, heat embossed with gold WOW embossing powder, the sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp also heat embossed with the gold and then cut out with a Die-namics Fishtail die.

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

Less is More Week 192 - Autumn's Bounty
Brown Sugar Challenge 114 - Autumn/ Fall
Crafty Catz Challenge 249 - All Sentimental

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Hi Pauline thank you so much for your lovely comment, Eddie is now at home with Jess, my mum and me, he is led next to mum on the sofa and falling asleep, he is a wee little thing I thought Jess was small but she looks huge next to him, lol. Jess fitted straight in with all the dogs when we went to see Eddie, she was fine all she wanted to do is play. I know it will take a few days for Eddie to get used to being in a new home and for Jess to settle down a bit she is very excited at the moment. I will be taking quite a few pictures of them both and show them on my blog. Pauline your card is exquisite, I love the wonderful clean style the display of leaves looks fabulous a truly awesome Autumnal make.
