Autumn Colours at Sweet Stampin'

Good afternoon, running a little late today with my DT card for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin', my husband is off for a jolly with the 'lads' for a couple of days, so I've invited some friends around tomorrow for 'a girls' night, thought I'd better clean the house a bit before they come :). It's probably been a complete waste of time as my lovely Mathilda is more than capable of mucking it up again before they arrive, but at least I've made an effort!Who cares about a bit of dog slobber!!!

Anyway, back to the challenge and the card. The theme this week is Autumn Colours/ Harvest, lovely, I do love these colours! I used a beautiful Stamping Bella stamp called Tiny Townie Fay Loves Fall, this was given to me by my lovely teamie and blogging friend Wends, not only is she an extremely talented crafter, she's a wonderful warm and generous person. Thanks Wends!
I coloured the little sweetie with my copics and used distress inks to make a subtle cloudy background. I die cut 3 banners from shades of orange cardstock and embossed them using 3 different efs. I added a couple of die cut leaves, stamped sentiment and twine.
There are some stunning cards from my teamies this week, I think everyone loves the autumnal colours! Please hop over and take a look- we'd love to see what you create using this lovely theme, so please do play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend.
