Stamp with Fun #127–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  Another weekend has flown by and it’s back to work already (groan) and this week sees the start of school for most children in England & Wales I think.  However my boy’s school have a staggered start so my eldest son goes back on Wednesday and my youngest not until Thursday, which is really silly in my opinion – the boys think it brilliant of course! 

I’m here this morning with my DT card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge and this week our theme is very apt – “autumn” as the summer season has definitely come to an end here in South Wales.  Here is my card:

SWF #127 - autumn

SWF #127 - autumn (close up)

I have used a super cute Lilliput image from CC designs called ‘rainy day’ and coloured her with my promarkers and flex markers.  The papers are basic grey from the ‘cappella’ paper pad and the flowers are wild orchid crafts.  I have to say that I rarely use green but when I do I really like it. 

The rest of the design team have created gorgeous creations once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Order of the opus gluei challenge – roses or rosettes

Stampin’ sisters in Christ challenge – nothing bright only muted or earth colours

Stamptacular challenge – the sky’s the limit/anything goes

Whoopsi daisy challenge – let’s bling it (pearls)

My mum’s craft shop challenge – 1-2-3 (1 image, 2 roses, 3 papers)

Crafty catz challenge – monochromatic

Catch the bug challenge – anything goes

Mark’s finest papers challenge – bring on the bling (pearls)

Secret crafter Saturday challenge – colours of autumn

Sweet stampin’ challenge – anything but birthday + optional sketch (which I’ve rotated)

I hope you will have a chance to enter our challenge this week and I really look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.  I will be back later with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge so ‘see’ you later.  Thanks for stopping by.
