Autumn Colours

Hi! My card today is on the theme of autumn, although due to the sun we're having here I've used my new Stampavie stamp with a sunflower...


The image is from Stampavie, it was one of my birthday pressies, coloured with my new Promarkers and the paper is Basic Grey. The flower is layered using several Prima flowers. I've also added buttons (for a change), jute string and a little butterfly charm to finish off. The card is for two challenges, Stampavie Design Team Blog challenge (Autumn theme) and also Cupcake Craft Challenges (the theme is Cute As A Bug).

Well the sun is shining here, despite the fact that I've been doing the Rain Dance! I know, it's lovely to see the sun but we haven't had rain since the beginning of July (unless you count one little shower we had about a month back). Everything in the garden is looking really dry, and to save the trees from dying we're having to water them too! I dreading my next water bill! Hopefully with the start of autumn we'll get some of the precious wet stuff (if only we could do a swap with the UK, a bit of sun for a bit of rain).

Well, better go and tidy my craftroom, looks like a bomb's dropped on it!!!
