Changing Seasons at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi there, how is your weekend going? We're having some lovely weather here in my little corner of the UK, its been so warm and sunny that its hard to believe its Autumn but the leaves are beginning to turn and the nights are turning chilly. Over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, our theme this time around is 'Changing Seasons', chosen by yours truly! You've got a month to enter to be in with a chance of winning a $20 voucher to spend at Flonzcraft but don't forget we're a stamping challenge (no digis allowed)  so ink up those rubber/clear stamps and play along.

For My DT card I've used a couple of my favourite stamps from Art Nouveau Silhouettes large stamp sheet (a real bargain as you get 8 really good sized stamps from $16.99!
I've stamped them onto acetate and attached them to some card coloured up with alcohol inks using some pretty brads. The papers, little faux postage stamps, postcard and sentiments are all from Graphic 45, they've been distressed with Gathered Twigs distress ink and layered up on kraft card.  I've added lace, dark green seambinding topped with a button behind the images/

I've adde some paper flowers, pine cones, berries and lots of leaves. I made the leaves using Justrite stamps which I stamped onto a masterboard made with alcohol inks on glossy card, I cut the leaves out, die cut a few more leaves from my masterboard and scrunched them all up a bit before popping them on my card. 

Here's another pic of the images, I love these glamourous ladies. I certainly don't look as elegant when I walk my dogs lol.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafting by Designs: All about Autumn
Cut it up: Back to nature
Frillie and Funkie: Autumn splendour
Fussy and Fancy: autumn colours
Mod Squad: get your 'Fall' on
