A Blustery Day

The dark nights are starting to really draw in and it's been really blustery here today, so were definitely well into Autumn.  Yep summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye.  So in celebration of Autumn here's a card that was inspired by challenges at:

Sir Stampalot - autumn breezes, button and bow
Penny Black at Allsorts - colours of Autumn
Stampin' for the weekend - autumn inspiration
Ooh la la - nothing floral
Papercraft Star - challenge 16, sketch, I flipped the sketch 90 degrees



Supplies used:
Stamp - Penny Black - majestic, PTI round & round
Card and paper - some very old Gin-X. see it's worth saving that old stuff
Leaves - PTI die

I love the argyle paper on this card as it makes me think of cosy jumpers.
This week I'm back to my healthy eating and making sure I do my steps every day.  I don't know why I let it slide as I feel so much better when I'm doing some daily exercise and eating well.  Will I ever learn?  I doubt it!

Such a gorgeous card Ginger. Using the Pink colours gives it a very unusual look but it works really well. Great idea using the little punched leaves which co-ordinate beautifully.
Thank you for playing along with the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge this month and we hope to see more of your lovely work in our next challenge.
