Autumn Blessings ...

Hi there crafty friends and followers, I'm definitely not liking this colder snap of weather we have been getting here in Ayrshire! Just wish the warm days were back again, although I do like the multi colourful autumnal days!! With that in mind, it's my turn to share with you my little bit of dt inspiration for Digi Doodle Studios. Here I am using this gorgeous autumnal little image called Booker from the new Autumnal/Winter collection. Isn't he so cute?!! This is my creation...


On a 7x7 card blank, I matt and layered glitter card with plaid card. The image, I printed, coloured, then carefully cut out, placing as shown. To decorate, I added various flower/leaf die-cuts, the flowers I also lightly inked round edges and added pearl drops to blossom branches, handmade pumpkin that I created using circle dies. Finishing off with die cut sentiment topper.
