Cuttlebug Spot - Anything Fall

The theme of this week's Cuttlebug Spot Challenge is:

'Anything Fall'

Here in the UK, the leaves have all started to turn the most glorious colours...so that's what inspired my card.


I made the leaves using some freebie digi stamps I found on Tiffany Doodles. I printed them on to plain white card, then cut them all out. I used chalk inkpads to colour the leaves, then I embossed them with the follwing Cuttlebug folders: 'Spots & Dots'; 'Kassie's Brocade'; 'Textile'; and 'Perfect Paisley'. Using one of my circular Nesties as a guide, I created a wreath with the leaves, sticking them to the card with 3D foam pads. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp.

For more autumnal inspiration, please check out the fabulous creations by my lovely Cuttlebug Spot DT buddies.
