Autumn elf

Good morning. A really quick post from me to tell you about the latest challenge at Sweet Stampin'.
I'm still at Mum's, brothers are due back sometime today, and I'm busy looking after Mum and preparing a meal for the returning travellers! It'll be great to get back home -there's nothing like sleeping in your own bed:)- but I'll miss being with my lovely Mum!
Anyway, enough waffle, the challenge theme is (you've guessed it) Autumn. I used a fabulous Aurora Wings image, coloured with copics , glossy accents on the berries. The background paper is stamped using distress inks and a Lavinia stamp. The die cut leaf and orange looking mat are cut from a piece of packaging(too lovely to throw away!) which is actually a lovely metallic bronze colour, didn't photograph at all well! Added a couple of skeleton leaves, a bow and a brad.
Hope you'll be tempted to join us with your own beautiful Autumnal creations, there's a lovely prize of a £10 voucher from our generous sponsor Bunny Zoe.
Have a great weekend!
