Free Wheeling

  My next card is for an autumn birthday. I embossed orange core'dinations cardstock using Sheena Douglass' leaves embossing folder and then inked it with vintage photo distress ink. Brown ribbon was wrapped round it before fixing it to the cream card base.
  The image from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse autumn collection is coloured using Promarkers and mounted onto pale and dark orange mirri card. Having fixed it to the card with foam pads I attached pale orange mirri card leaves to the corners.
  Leaves die cut from differing coloured mirri card were arranged together with a bow on the brown ribbon.

  I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
  House Mouse and Friends - transport
  Inky Impressions - animals
  Penny Black or More - autumnal colours
  ABC - unlimited
  Addicted to stamps - anything goes


  1. That's a really lovely embossing folder and looks lovely in the rich orange colour and reflects the leaves in the HM image.
