Hi everyone,

Can you believe we are almost upon the time when we alter our clocks again in UK?  Where has the time gone to!  I must admit I am not keen on the dark mornings and dark nights.  I am not keen on this cold weather that is forecast either! lol

Today I have a card to share which I have made specifically for one or two Challenges.  My main aim was to include Autumn colours and texture.

There is lots going on with this card, I had such fun making it.  There is distressing, inking, machine stitching, cheesecloth, lots of die-cuts, etc. etc. The list goes on.

Die-cuts:  Cheery Lyn, Tim Holtz,  Magnolia
Image created by Mo Manning and coloured with Copics and Promarkers (Her apple is finished with Glossy Accents)
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Kraft, ribbon, lace, charm Stickles etc.  from stash

I would like to enter this into the following Challenges:

Cheery Lyn challenge - Texture 
Live and Love Crafts - Autumn Colours 
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Autumn Breeze 
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - Anything Goes 
D.C.C. & Friends Challenge - Autumn to You 

Thanks for looking,

Judy x
