Autumn


I have tried to combine three challenges for this card. I recently discovered the images of Mo Manning (see the link on my side bar) and I absolutely love them. There are several of her baby images in my previous few posts. This little chap is having a fine old time playing with the leaves and I can just image my little granddaughter doing something very similar.
The Challenge from Mo's Challenge Blog is to use one of her images in an Autumn card, with no more than 2 embellishments. Well I'm not quite sure what you'd count as embellishments here... the raffia bow? the trail of leaves? I don't know, but I hope it qualifies!
The second challenge is from Friday Sketchers and is of course, the sketch.
The third is from Charisma Cardz where the theme this week is 'It's so distressing'. A fair bit of distress ink in Tea Dye has been used to distress this card!
The papers are My Mind's Eye and I think they're gorgeous. The base layer and the squares are the two sides of one of the papers. It seems such a shame that one side is hidden!
My Copics have just arrived and I'm off to practise!
