Challenge #53 Bearlymine Designs Challenge - "Fall Colours"

Good Morning Everyone, well as Autumn is now on its way over on the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot we want to see "Fall Colours" on your cards, that is "Greens, Browns, Reds, Oranges and Yellow" so its going to be bright card this time for sure. As I live close to the Forest of Dean it wont be long before the trees start to change and its just wonderful to see when they do.
And now before we start you will want to know who our sponsor is for the Challenge and that is

and they are offering a prize $35 Gift Vouchers to spend on their website
And believe me when I tell you their flowers are just stunning so its worth a visit just to browse and no doubt you will be tempted to buy as I am. And now here is my card for this weeks Challenge.


I have used Tilda rolling in the leaves for my image and have coloured her with my copic pens then used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.8 to cut her out, then drew around the die on brown card and created the mount for it. The sentiment is one from Waltzing Mouse Stamps and I have used two together to create the image and then mounted it onto brown card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the papers I have used are from Donna's "Designer Extreme Cd.1" you will find it here, and I have chosen papers with the colours required for this Challenge, the first paper is a orange one with darker spots on, the second is a red background with leaves on and the third a green with yet further leaves on. I also used a forth paper in dark green and cut it into a 5" square and then used my Martha Stewart leaf border and corner punches on it, this was placed on top of the first paper.
I layered the mounts as shown and to finish of I have cut with my leaf Nestabilitie dies and then used a inkpad to distress the insides to show the veins.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "Fall Colours" Challenge.

Hi Shirley

Gorgeous Autumn colours on this lovely make .. .. and a great layout to showcase them all too.

Those leaves look brilliant!

Sorry your video and photographs of the wedding were not as good as you would have liked .. .. but you still have lots of happy memories. Nothing can spoil those.

I hope that other people did a video so you can have a copy of that.

Love Jules xx
