Lovely Autumn...

Yay! I have pretty much returned to the land of the living! And just in time, too, because I wanted to get my card in for the challenge at Simon Says Stamp. Using the sketch from Creative Inspirations, I made this autumnal card, complete with machine stitching for Simon's Challenge.

I ended up cutting the image out after I stamped and colored it because I wanted a more weathered background... those curls are no easy task to cutterbee around! But I like how she turned out :)

Papers: BasicGrey, Fancy Pants, BoBunny
Image: Whiff of Joy
Elements: buttons, thread, and crocheted lace
Colored pencils and distress ink

A fabulous card Kristen! I love your image and wonderful colouring and the design and stitching are so eye catching. The background behind the image is absolutely perfect for her, it looks like an aged whitewashed wall, such a lovely effect. Chris :)
