If I were to buy cards which I don't there is never much choice during the winter months, I guess in the card industry they think people don't have birthdays during the months leading up to Christmas, and as shops start Christmas earlier and earlier need I say more.
I tried to play with some distress inks and have a go at a water colour wash and make a warm graduated effect, mainly as they are my mums colours, she love autumn.
I also used the memory box chrysanthemum die corner as mum also loves the flower.I cut 2 in gold mirri card and placed in the corners of my painted card.
I added a gold mirri card butterfly in the centre and a sprinkling of gold sequins.
I cheated with the sentiments and used peel-off stickers in gold in the corners to balance the card. Hope mum likes it.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Memory Box challenges - sequins
Animal friends -halloween/autumn
(hope a butterfly counts for an animal)
The cutie pie challenge - 5 of a kind
HLS - anything goes with dies
