Autumn's Dream

Autumn's Dream

Hi everyone, well it's been a funny old week, we have finally started to 
get some re-decorating done in the bedroom but once again we've had to 
stop and wait for the lovely weather to return so that the paint dries quickly, 
I can't stand the smell of wet paint and it just seems to take forever to dry when 
the weather's cold and wet...never mind it's given me some time to make a card.

The card I've made was made using a digi stamp called 

Autumn's Dream



Card Recipe
Turquoise card, First Edition Design Papers, Gold Mirri, Turquoise Ribbon, Brown 
Organza & Satin Trim Ribbon (I used this to make the rosette) Copper Leaf Charms,

To colour this image I have used the following Pro/Fexmarkers
Skin~Coral, Dusky Pink & Blush
Hair~Satin, Morning Mist, March Hare, Tan & Tawny Owl
Owl & Tree~Tan, March Hare, Tawny Owl, Shale, Honeycomb & Island Lagoon

sweater, oh well that's the good old British weather for you lol.
