Autumnal Colours on the catwalk

Hello there, and a big warm welcome to my new followers! Its lovely to 'meet' you. Well the last two weeks have zipped by so quickly,  its time for our new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time around our theme is 'Autumnal Colours' chosen by my lovely teamie Avril. As always our lucky winner will receive a fab $20 voucher from Flonzcraft and the stamps are such good value you get loads for your money! Don't forget we're a stamping challenge though so no digis allowed. 

For my DT project I've made a little Book Box card using a template from Which Craft?. I've used papers from Pion Designs, distressed with a craft knife and old paper distress ink. The image is of course from Flonzcraft, one of my favourites and this time I've stamped on watercolour card and coloured with my distress markers. I love the colours of Autumn, especially this time of year as the garden is still full of flowers and the leaves are just starting to change colour, so pretty :-)

The gorgeous lace, ribbon, butterfly charm and resin flower embellie are from the Ribbon Girl as is the larger butterfly.  I made a little closure with a spellbinders die and an ideology fastener. Here's a pic of the inside, using the same papers and my favourite sentiment from Chocolate Baroque.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

365 Cards: in the garden
A Creative Romance: dies/punches
Anything goes: in the garden add some butterflies
Crafty Sentiments: Fall/autumn colours
Divas by Design: anything goes
Paper Shelter: card with multiple folds
Top Tip Tuesday: Shaped Cards

Now all I need to do is get my beads out and make a little pressie to go inside.
Thanks so much for visiting today, don't forget to check out the gorgeous projects to inspire you from my DT Sisters. I'll be back later with my DT project for PanPastel UK :-)
