Autumn Colours at Lexi's Creations

Hi Susan here...

I hope you are all well and looking forward to the Autumn season...those beautiful colours of autumn when the countryside takes on a whole new look and even the trees get a chance to make it look like we are having a second spring.
I love the rich vibrant colours of autumn they are so warming and comforting to look at. Over at Lexi's Creations today we are starting our new challenge and the theme is

'Autumn Colours'

We want to see all those fabulous rich colours on your creations, really show us what Autumn means to you!
For full details of the challenge and our fabulous sponsor please call across to Lexi's Creations and take a look at what my design team has produced for this challenge.

Now onto my cards.....yes I have made two for this challenge, hope you like them.

My first card is using a digi image available from Fairy Dust Crafts.

Backing paper from a 12x12 book. Beautiful shiny mottled paper with autumn leaves in the design.
The flower is from Prima, the leaves I made myself using a stamp that I embossed with clear embossing powder then carefully cutting out coloured with inks and then shaped.
The tiny silver charm is from Ebay.
The beautiful woven ribbon is from East of India.

I have used the digi image Lady Bug Mushroom, designed by Lexi Lee and available from Fairy Dust Crafts Store. Coloured using chalks and edged using distressing inks.

My second card is using a digi image available from our new sponsor My Hearts Pieces

I have used some basic Kraft card cut to shape in scallops, edged with distressing inks, the checked paper is from Nitwits.

This is to show you the side view. The pearls are from our local market.
The flower is from Prima, the leaves have been made using a stamp that I embossed with clear embossing powder then cut out and coloured with distressing inks.
The sentiment is using a stamp I have had for ages and a die from Whimsey.

This is a beautiful digi image from our new sponsor My Heart Pieces and is called Bird House. Coloured using Promarkers and edged with distressing inks.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my creations and thank you for your wonderful comments.
Love and hugs
