Autumn leaves

   No backing paper on this card, just several stamped images combined together. These are from the Autumn collection and the Happy Days collection of Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Design rubber stamps and were coloured using Promarkers. The distressed background was formed by applying distress inks in the following order: rusty hinge, spiced marmalade, scattered straw and finally fired brick. I then mounted it onto a dark maroony brown mirri card and wrapped ribbon round each corner, a bow being attached to one of these. A butterfly stamped from one of the above sets was placed so that the branch was not suspended in mid air! Finally a happy Birthday sentiment was added.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Flutter By Wednesday - autumn colours
   Penny Black and More - autumn colours
   Joanna Sheen - ribbons
   Paper Pretties - distress
   Whoopsie Daisy - fall related
   House Mouse and Friends - autumn leaves
   Creative Corner - the leaves are falling
   Send A Smile 4 Kids - fall
