An extra post here, because I have joined a background ATC exchange and so am having to do some extra ATC's to go out with the background cards. It does mean I have less time for the other crafts though :(
So here is my Fallen Leaves collection.
For this card I used a patterned base card and attached a pale pink ribbon on the left side. Over this I layered a shiny purple ribbon and tied a bow (which for a wonder actually look half decent!). I then used some dyed feathers to make a leaf litter look and added a floral 'best wishes' tag to finish.

On a white base card I layered a gold and then red ribbon down the left side. A knot rather than a bow was tied into the red ribbon. A gold leaf peel-off coloured with promarker pens and blended to create an autumn colour palette was used as the main image, and a gold sentiment added to finish.

A leaf patterned paper was layered onto card to make an autumnal background for this ATC. Green and gold ribbons were added to the left, keeping the natural woody feel to the card. Two wooden leaves were added for the main focus of the card. The 'with love' sentiment and heart border stickers finish the card off neatly, blending nicely into the background.

Remembering the RAF soldiers offer of help she heads down to the village of Hambledon to find employment and lodging at the local pub. She soon becomes one of the family and her fortune changes for the better after she meets a rather trying and spoilt rich lady. This lady allows her to live her dream of flying, while she still manages to make a relationship with the RAF soldier.
I do enjoy period dramas and this one was very well written and well read. The accents were brilliant and it was always easy to recognise who was speaking. The story was humourous and serious, giving a glimpse into life during the war. A very good book to listen to on long journeys, and one I also think would be good in print.
Thank you for reading.
