Autumn Lady

Hi Folks,

The last week at Make My Monday's Autumn theme is Buttons and Ribbon, so for me, a feminine Autumn card.
The image is  Kanban, not sure of the name as it was borrowed from my crafty friend Diane, coloured with Promarkers and distressed with Vintage Photo and Walnut stain ink. The base card, was coloured with Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade DIs and then randomly stamped with an old Anita's leaf stamp in the same inks, plus Vintage Photo. The seam binding ribbon was coloured with a mix of DIs. and finished with an antique button, the co'ordinations backing was embossed with a CB script folder.  The Design Team have come up with some stunning creations as usual, so please take a look here, I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

It has been a pleasure working with the ladies from Make My Monday, and I look forward to entering their challenges again in the New Year.  If you're still with me, you are probably wondering whats wrong with the December challenges!  Nothing..........its just that I'm off on holiday for 2 weeks on Wednesday, so apart from scheduled DT posts, this is it for now.  I must admit, I'm a bit stressed, we didn't organise this until a couple of weeks ago, so I have been in overdrive getting everything done before I go away, hence the poor blogging of late!

I am entering this is:
  Crazy 4 Challenges - Put a Bow on it
  Stampin for the Weekend - Texture - Embossed background
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Gingerloft - Leaves (background)

Thanks for looking, see you in a couple of weeks.
