Autumn Splendor


I've been looking for an excuse to use these gorgeous papers from Basic Grey for ages and this weeks challenge at There's Magic in the Air gave me the ideal opportunity. The challenge was to use the free Autumn Splendor image and take inspiration from a lovely photo of some autumn leaves, hence the reds and oranges I've used

I'm also entering this card into two other challenges, Cupcake Challenge #63 for the sketch and Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #30 which is to create an autumn themed project using traditional autumn colours and include some stamping (I stamped the leaves).

  1. Carol, toad in a hole? you must explain to me what this dish is! Now, your card is just wonderful and how funny we always tend to hoard our BG for just the right project. I think you held out for just the right project too! Love the punch (MS I think) and the sketch is just wonderful and you combined all 3 challenges wonderfully. Love the little heat embossed with love as well. just beautiful! Thanks for playing along again this week over at TMITA's challenge!
