Dress up those trees, Autumn Colours, Autumn Glory, Orange, Brown and Leafy Green

I have had a little play today with my brayer and and adirondack ink pads, which have been lying in my craft cupboard for at least a year without seeing daylight, I brayed the background and then used 6 different stamps by Lavinia. The tree and leaves are seperate stamps so I am going to enter it into the challenge at Saturday Spotlight which is 'Dress Up Those Trees'. The idea is to add something to a tree ie baubles to a xmas tree or snow to a fir tree, but im hoping adding leaves to a bare tree trunk counts.

Anyhoo this is a totally different card for me, but I am really pleases with the result and will probably make a few more as it was sooo quick.

I am also entering this card into the By the Cute and Girly> challenge which is autumn Glory and the Stampin for the Weekend challenge which is a colour combo of orange, brown and leafy green - It also fits into the Secret Crafter Challenge which is Autumn Colours.
I know this is not a great photo as I took it inside hopefully I will manage a better one today.
Hope you like it.

  29. Hi Beccy

    Sorry I am a bit late in commenting but I have been away for two weeks and am only just catching up with the world.

    What a fantastic autumn card - love your colours choices and the images.

    I too have a few Lavinia stamps but haven't yet used them alongside my brayer - dare I admit that I still need to unwrap it!!! You have inspired me to do it sooner rather than later. Thank you!

    Thank you for taking part in the very first "By the Cute & Girly" challenge. I hope you play along again next month.

    Love Jules xx
