It feels like Autumn

Hi guys, well it's not been a brill summer that's for sure, still waiting for it to come don't hold out much luck though!
I just love these latest Magnolias from the turning leaves collection and when I saw the inspirational photo on Magnolia-licious highlites I couldn't resist making a card,

Yep! back to my distress re-inkers lol, for the background, Tilda with corn, acorns and tree! phew
I've used a Go Kreate die to make my base card then used a Tim Holtz distressed doily die, some raffia and cheesecloth and a paper doily for detail and texture,
the flowers are froma a local craft shop and the leaves are a Tim Holtz Alterations die called Autumn Gatherings, apt hey?
 I cut my tree out,( flippin hard it was too lol )then layered it with pin Flair glue,
I distressed the fence with some sand paper to get a grunge aged look,
the cute bird meant to look like a Robin yes we get those in Britain in  Autumn /winter here, was from Hobby Craft,
the paper is from Magnolia too and is gorgeous, though I've managed to hide it quite well he he,

Challenges
Magnolia-licious Highlites ~ Photo inspiration
Live and love crafts ~ fabby  Sketch
Lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia ~ Flowers
Deep Ocean ~ Anything goes
Midweek Magnolias ~ use two or more dies/punches ~ go kreate die and tim holtz distressed doily die

hope you likey
happy crafting,
Hugs Liz xx

Wow such beautiful colours on this card Liz. I just love Autumn, the colours are so fantastic. Mind you I love autumn more when we have had a fabulously sunny summer and the trees are all in full bloom ready for their golden change......but considering it has rained almost every day in Northern Ireland since the end of May.....Autumn can stay away for another wee while longer if it wants, lol.

Good morning Liz,
You've just made my mind up about this stamp, I have to buy it, send it to you so you can paint it and send it back to me :o)
Your card is stunning Liz, I love the Autumn colours, my Daughters just bought me a little parcel full of goodies in Autumn colours, I just can't wait to receive them now.
