Autumn colours

Yesterday we had this years first touch of autumn with a chill in the air, so my card did get autumn colours although almost everything is still green outdoors. Some of the maples has got a few dark red leaves and my sons are going back to school tomorrow after ten weeks holiday. Some years summer ends so quickly! I'm hoping for some more warm days :)

The orange paper was made with Distress Inks and the red one was made with Alco Inks. The flowers are made of different scraps, one of them is coloured with acrylics and Perfect Pearls. The buttons has been embossed with a golden powder, fab way to alter recycled buttons from clothes.

Stamps: PB
Colouring: watercolour pens
Tools: MS border punch, QK flower and leaves, CB flowers and ornament , Sizzix flourish, Spellbinder oval
Accessories: K&C bling, Stickles, ribbon is from my stash

Penny Black at Allsorts: Glitter and Glitz, they are also looking for new DT members
Penny Balck Saturday Challenge: fab sketch by Domi

Hope you're having something fun planned today, I have some cleaning to catch up with and then some relaxing crafting to look forward to :)
