Autumn flowers

   The theme for this fortnight's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is explosion of colour.
   I immediately thought of the explosion of colour that autumn brings both in the changing colour of leaves and the daisies that come into bloom and therefore used a David Wolverson flower decoupage sheet from Joanna Sheen. I matted and layered it and three different card onto white card and added a bow made using three strips of ribbon recycled from garments.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Creative Inspirations - autumn glow
   Incy Wincy Designs - happy birthday
   Cupcake Inspirations - fall
   Brown Sugar - halloween/autumn
   Lemon Shortbread - anything goes
   Creatalicious - anything goes with use purple
   Seize The Birthday - anything goes with optional foliage
   Kitty Bee Designs - halloween/fall
   Through The Craft Room Door - anything goes
   House of Cards - autumn flowers
   Pile It On - black, purple and orange
   As You Like It -Halloween or autumnal colours (I love the variety in the rich autumnal colours so that's got to be my favourite.)
   Jo's Scrap Shack - anything goes
