Crafty Catz #566 Anything Goes, optional twist Shades of Autumn

 Good morning, the weeks and months are flying by- October has arrived, the days are getting shorter...and colder. We were so lucky in this part of the UK, September was a lovely month of mainly dry weather and beautiful warm sunny days, a great end to the summer.

My card today iis for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz, Ginny is hosting and has chosen the lovely theme - Shades of Autumn,  as always this theme is entirely optional.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is 

I love colouring these fun images! The one I have chosen today is Beckie Buttons, I've used my Copics as usual.
Not sure what this card fold is called, the background DP is embossed using a Tattered Lace ef, lightly sponged with Distress ink. The leaves and flowers were die cut from white cardstock using TH dies and coloured with Distress inks.

There are some gorgeous colourful creations from my lovely teamies to feast your eyes on over at Crafty Catz, and of course we'd love to have you join us this week- remember anything goes at Crafty Catz.

Thanks for stopping by
