The Roses Challenge - Fall


Hello Bloggers,

This month's Roses challenge was Patti's choice (the other Patti Sue) and she asked for an Autumn card or as you Americans would say 'Fall'.   Guess what it's been an amazing week end here in Sydney, the storms they predicted didn't materialize and we enjoyed beautiful sunshine.  A bit hard to concentrate on Autumn colours, so if my card is a bit lame......that's my excuse :)


I've used one of Marianne's beautiful cut designables folders to hold my featured sentiment with its flower and leaves.  Sponging with tea dye distress inks to calm down the bright white card!
KaiserCraft 6 x 6 paper pad Peachy Keen Collection and  Basic Grey's  - Origins 6 x 6 paper pad supplied the dsp today.  I used H.C. Posy Patch flower die and left the petals quite flat, for a change! For the centre of the flower I used one of KaiserCrafts Sparklets.......yum!
The sentiment is from a GKD set called A Year of Leaves......talk about mixing things up.....did I leave anyone out today :)

I hope you'll go take a look at the rest of our Bouquet's cards you'll find the links under Roses at the top of my page.

Thanks for your visit today. x
