Autumn Leaves

Materials

7x7" Card blank
White cardstock to die cut leaves flowers borders and labels
Papers from the new Polka Doodles magazine - Christmas Boutique
Spellbinders border, leaves, flowers and labels dies
Marianne bird on a branch die
Ancient Copper Cosmic Shimmer Mist
Spice Big and Juicy pad
White pen
Old saying found in my collection.

Even though the papers were from a Christmas collection the two that I used went so well with the colours in the Spice Big and Juicy pad and the Cosmic Shimmer lifts the leaves and the bird from the background as there are a lot of rust colours. Hopefully this has given the card that real rich and warm feeling you get in Autumn of sitting snuggled up next to a roaring log fire.... ahhhh....
