Autumn Breeze - Joanna Sheen Challenge

So excited - today is my first challenge as part of the Joanna Sheen Challenge Design Team and my first challenge is Autumn Breeze! So, we want to see your autumn creations, featuring autumny details and colours.

I used one of the fab images from the Daisy and Friends CD ROM.

The current candy on the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog is for the Daisy and Friends CD ROM and the Daisy and Friends Christmas CD - click here to enter! These are full of fab images (coloured and uncoloured) and papers for your to print to your hearts content. This image is so cute - she is all wrapped up for the cold autumn weather:

I have coloured her with my ProMarkers. The papers I have used are Falling for Fall from Summertime Designs! These are gorgeous papers, which were used by the design team in the Autumn blog hop and they are free to use if you follow the link above. The Autumn sentiment stamp is from one of my recent expeditions to a craft fair and is by Inkylicious - this company do some fabulous stamps! Leaf dies are from the Foliage Spellbinders dies and the little butterfly is Cheery Lynn. I have used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to distress various elements on this card. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls are The Hobby House. I have also used a couple of little wooden leaves that I got from a craft shop but not sure who makes them ..

I am quite chuffed with the end result on this one as I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. I am loving these autumn colours and the papers are just perfect!

So, can't wait to see what you come up with! See you over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog!

Happy Crafting!
