Autumn Colours - I ♥ Promarkers



Yay, Im back! :)  Hope everyone is having a great week, and the weather isnt too wet where you are. 

This weeks theme on I ♥ Promarkers is 'Autumn Colours', and over the last 2 weeks we have had rainbows, rain, wind, sun and even the first sight of snow on Ben More up here!  We are sponsored by Letraset for this weeks challenge, who are generously giving a fab pack of Promarkers as the prize, so its well worth joining in.

I used a gorgeous Sweet Pea image on this card and hand stitched and distressed Prima papers.  I used Spellbinder dies and McGill punch for the frondy leaves and the flowers are WOC.  The larger leaves are from quite old stash, as is the old necklace bead, and I also used an MS punch for the loop border.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Crafts and Me - Orange
Stamptacular Sunday - So Distressing
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Emerald Faeries - Punches/Dies

Thank so much for looking at my blog today,  and I will be catching up later :)

The colouring of that big cat is just amazing - those eyes & the way you've used the deep russet red for the trim on her dress & wings. The different shades of green with the oranges make this a very pretty autumnal card & I love that little bead.
