Boat on the Pond

Hi there,

It definitely felt like Autumn was here this morning. The temperature reading had gone from double figures at 6am (15 degrees) to less than 3 degrees, with slippery road warning, this morning!! Brrrr. However, the sun has come out again and I got a couple of hours digging in down on the allotment once I got back from work. I hate working weekends :( - 12 days on just sucks lol. (Too little crafting time).

Anyway, I managed to make a card yesterday thanks to the rain, and here it is:

I stamped the image onto plain card and coloured with promarkers. A pale orange, flowery paper (Papermania Capsule Collection - Summer) was layered onto green mirror card and then the image was layered onto this, using foam pads to make it stand out a little. This was then layered onto a floral patterned paper in blue (Country Diary free paper stack). A thin purple ribbon was wrapped around the top of this panel before attaching to a plain orange base card. 3D sparkly butterfly stickers were added above the image and sentiment underneath. To finish two pastel butterflies were placed to either side of the sentiment.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
