Autumn Blooms



I don't know why I do this to myself. I sit down at my craft desk to get stuff done, No ones home. I'm distraction free and I think to myself hey I haven't checked Kristina's MACM yet only to find out she has posted a new colour challenge. I then can't resist and make a card frantically trying to ensure I get in before the cut off day and time only to find out... I read the date and time wrong and I'm actually submitting like the 15th card or something! Don't I feel like a doofus?!?!

Here are the stunning (yet a little out of my comfort zone) Autumn colours and inspiration photo... Choc Chip (Mmmm Chocolate... I just started a diet and haven't eaten chocolate in over a week! I'm dieing) Bravo Burgundy, Pumpkin Pie (Mmmm Pie!), So Saffron and Old Olive






So here is the card I threw together without too much thought or effort because I wanted to play with the colours but knew I had a million more important things that I should be doing.

Stamp Set: In the Spotlight, Priceless

Cardstock: Choc Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White

Ink: So Saffron, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy

Accessories: Paper Piercer, Corner rounder, Choc Chip Grosgrain, So Saffron Brads, Bravo Burgundy Button

Technique: Rock n Roll

A big shout out of congrats to my mate Kylie and the rest of the Gliders from the Australia Women's Wheelchair Basketball team on winning a Bronze medal in Beijing! All you need is a gold in London Kylie and you've got the set! I know you girls can do it! Great work

Anywho I must be off, my bed is desperatly calling my name. I have been working myself a little hard lately I think!

Nighty Night!
