Pink Gem Designs - "Autumn" -

Good Morning all you Gemsters, well I have some wonderful news my new Great Grandson arrived safely on the 15th and mum and dad plus big brother Jacob are all giving young Toby the very best of care and love.
And so far there doesnt seem to be much brotherly rivalry between them no doubt that will come as they get older.
Anyway todays Challenge is a "Autumn" one and there are some gorgeous images to play with over on Pink Gem Designs
So do pop over to Janets website to see them and Im sure you will exactly what you are after, I chose this little sweetheart


Full of the joys of Autumn, and here were I live in the Forest of Dean Gloucestershire the trees are just beginning to turn to their Autumn colours and I suspect its doing the same near you. Anyway this little girl is titled "Autumn Bella" and you will find her here.
I have printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used Presscut dies to cut her out and a larger one for the mount. The sentiment was one I found on the internet and I thought it was appropriate for this gorgeous image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of brown card, the papers are from Sweetshoppe Digi Papers and this one is called  "Autumn Harvest" I have used three papers, the first a white background with leaves on, and the second and third a yellow one and another leaf one I have cut in stripes and used a leaf border punch down the edges, this was with a Martha Stewart Leaf Border punch.
These were then layered up as shown in the photo and across the top left hand corner I have laid a piece of wide ribbon and positioned my mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have created a bow with has been placed in the top left hand corner about the mounted image and three leaf buttons have been stuck down the right hand side.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Pink Gem Designs Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to create a card for this "Autumn" Challenge.
