Gosh, it feels like ages since I have made a card - so they other night I had a little play with my new distress inks and made a card for my sister in law and if you dont blink you might even see my first attempt at paper piecing (incase you did miss it, it was the scarf! - lol). Her birthday is at the end of October so have chosen some autumnal colours and will also be able to enter it into a couple of challenges - if I could remember where they were - oh dear its one of those days!!

The image is from Pink Gem, and the backing paper is Basic Grey with some bazzill that I have punched. I have coloured the image with promarkers and added glossy accents to the apples.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
Incy Wincy - Autumn colours
Allsorts - colours of autumn
Pollycraft - Autumn colours
A spoon full of sugar -autumnal colours
Creative card crew -Autumn/fall

(apologies for the poor picture - think I need to get the camera sorted!!)

Thanks for looking x
