   The theme for the latest challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is autumn. I chose to use one of the decoupage sheets from Jayne Netley Mayhew's Autumn collection as it reminds me of the crab apple tree I have in my garden and to incorporate it in an easel card.
   I have lots of scarps of printed papers in my stash and I used two pieces of these on the base of the easel. I joined the two pieces together and wrapped ribbon round round the join before matting it onto core'dinations cardstock and fixing it to the base of the card. The ribbon also acted as part of the stop for the easel.
    I also matted the decoupaged design onto the same coloured core'dinations cardstock before fixing it to the easel part of the card. Lastly I added a sentiment matted again onto core'dinations cardstock and attached this to the ribbon. A further sentiment was added to the corner of the base of the card.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Incy Wincy Designs - things that fly
   Fab 'n' Funky - go outside
   Inky Chicks - fairies and/or wings
   Pile It On - autumn colours/theme
   Make My Monday - autumn colours
   Creative Moments - anything goes with fall colours
