Lexi's Creations...Autumn

Hi Susan here....

Time flies by so fast...I can't believe it's been two weeks since the last challenge at Lexi's Creations but here we are again!!

Our challenge this time is 'Autumn' and we would love to see how you interpret this season. For me it's when all the trees start turning golden and the nights start to draw in. I love all the beautiful colours that the trees and bushes change into. This was my inspiration for my card.

For full details of the challenge and our fabulous sponsor Fairy Dust Crafts please call across to Lexi's Creations and check out what our very talented design team has made to give you some inspiration.

Now onto my card...

My backing papers are from Nitwits, these were just the colours I wanted, I also love the way the papers are distressed in their design.
I used a die to cut out the swirls and used Tim Holtz distressing inks to colour them.
That beautiful daisy is from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves I made from card and inks.

This gorgeous digi image has been designed by our very own Lexi and is available from Fairy Dust Crafts, it is called 'Mushroom Lady Bug'....I have used promarkers and chalks to colour and shade.
The ribbon is from my stash. 

The ticket sentiment on the front of the card and this sentiment that I have used on the inside of my card is from Raindrop Echo Designs.
