Gearing up for Autumn

Hi all, sorry it's taken so long since my last blog. I been a busy girl on days out with the family. I am exhausted after day trip to London and glad to get back to crafting for a rest! The card I have made was inspired by two Magnolia challenges, tied in a sketch with an autumn feel. Played about with my new Tilda image and decided to paper piece her dress as it looked better than my colouring! I chose to give her knee high boots and jodpur style leggings instead of turn-up jeans. I decoupaged the acorn and ended up doing a mixture of cross-stitch and running stitch around the edge using orange and brown embroidery silks.

Challenges I would like to enter:
Just Magnolia - sketch
Magnolia Stamp lovers - Autumn

I used: Cosmo cricket paper - Earth Love
Magnolia - Tilda with straw
SU - Touch of nature stamps, sentiment and acorn

Thanks for stopping by
Nicola xxx
