Cute Autumn

This is my card for this weeks CD Sunday challenge - Autumn Splendour, I have really struggled today trying to take decent photographs, I'm not the greatest photographer at the best of times but with this miserable weather it has been virtually impossible to get a decent picture.

The cute little puppy image is from Joanna Sheen's Puppies & Kittens CD and the papers and sentiment are from Docrafts Wellington Past Times CD.  I cut the image out using my Spellbinders Classic Circle die and decoupaged the leaves to add a little interest, I have left the card quite plain because I think it would be suitable for a man.

I have used to same layout to decorate the inside of my card.

Card Recipe:

Image:  Joanna Sheen - Puppies & Kittens CD
Papers and Sentiment:  Docrafts - Wellington Past Times Collection CD
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Classic Circle, Scalloped Circle

Have a good weekend.
