Autumn Is Here

Autumn has finally arrived... and not in half doses... it's windy and raining! Brrrrrr! So to fit in with today's weather I've done a little card using one of my favourite Stampavie stamps, Lucy with kitten! I've done this card for my mam, hope she likes it. The image is coloured with Distress Inks, I've also used these to distress around the edge. The little sentiment stamp is from Paper Make Up stamps. I've followed Dawny P's sketch over at Papertake Weekly Challenge, and have added some pearls etc for good measure. The lace detail has been recycled from some trim.

There's a few autumn challenges this week, so I'm entering my card into the following ones:
Stampavie 'Fall'
Simon Says Stamp 'It's Autumn'

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments, hope you have a nice weekend!

Oh comme ce tampon est adorable.

Merci pour ton commentaire sous la photo de Pépette. Malheureusement elle nous a quitté mercredi après son opération. Que de tristesse dans la maison ! C'est insoutenable. Merci pour ton soutien mon amie.
bisous
