Autumnal browns

I know, I know we haven't even got through spring yet and I too am so looking forward to summer , but these are the colours on my card.

I find paper piercing quite theraputic and it's one of the things craft wise I've found I can do whilst sat outside in the garden. After all all you need is a card stuck to a template and a piercing tool, oh and something to stop piercing yourself off course, done that before now.

I think the piercing does all the work and this leaf stamp just finishes it off, and I so love the clean and simple.

This will be going into the following challenges , providing I've not missed the deadlines of course.

Raise the bar-monochromatic with your fav colour ( I have a thing about brown at the mo especially when it's with turquoise)
Polka Doodles - monochromatic
Paper sundaes- no people
Die cuts are us-earth day celebration
The Corrosive challenge-Paper piercing
