Colours of Autumn

Good morning I'm late shift today so time for another quick post.This is the autumn card that I was working on last week...when I was getting a bit bored with Christmas card making.Christmas cards are now back in full swing production once more!...I'm happy with the design although would be better if I'd printed the digistamp a bit smaller as it does take over the card a bit but it was fun to colour; who couldn't resist such a cute fairy and bear...I chose it some time ago from Di's Digi Stamps following a card competition win; they have some awesome digi stamps and I would happily have them all. The papers used for the background and the stamped leaves are I think HOTP and the heart and butterfly borders where cut form a freebie paper pack that I've had for ages. As you can see I only have one leaf stamp and used it well!...my favourite part has got to be the mushrooms again these where cut from the same stamp set as the leaves, which where a freebie woodware set with a magazine(as is most of my stash it would seem !)...well off for a little blog hop before work.Thank you for visiting ;its much appreciated...and I hope to be back soon. I hope you have good bonfire night and don't get too wet or windswept !...crafty hugs Andrea X
