Fall Friends

Unsurprisingly, considering it's now October...there are quite a few 'Autumn/Fall' themed challenges around at the moment...and I don't really have any appropriate stamps or images, so wasn't going to enter them...but then the Penny Black Saturday Challenge picked it as their theme this week...and that's my absolute favourite challenge...I've entered every single one...so I just had to! lol
So, I'm also entering this card for the One Stop Craft Challenge where the theme is 'Autumn Inspiration' and the Our Creative Corner Challenge, who have an inspirational photo in autumnal colours this week. I followed the Get Sketchy sketch...and managed to include the 'bonus' challenge of 'Brads' too. This image is from the 'Hugs' clear set by Penny Black, and the papers are from the 'Bloom & Grow' pack by My Mind's Eye...I've had them since my birthday a couple of months ago...but couldn't bring myself to cut into them until now...but the colours were just perfect for these challenges! The flowers are by Prima, the ribbon is from Poppicrafts, the sentiment stamp is from a little set by Studio G, and the brads are all by Papermania.


This card is going to my partner for this month's friendship card swap over on the Docrafts forum...there's no theme this month, but I thought that the 'autumnal' feel was appropriate.
