Kicking up the Leaves

Hi Everyone

I have some very exciting news to share with you today.  I was recently invited to join the team at  Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog.  Thank you to the talented team for making feel really welcome.

This is a fortnightly Challenge and you must follow the theme and also include a Sentiment on your project.


I am so thrilled to be able to share with you my first project for them.  The Theme for the fortnight is Fall Fun + Sentiment. I post in Team B which is the 2nd week of the Challenge and hopefully get you all fired up to come and join in.  There is still plenty of time and it would be fabulous to have you come and join in with us. I love this Autumn time of year and love walking around looking at the colours that it brings. 

We are being sponsored by The Paper Shelter and the DT were given some lovely images to work with.  I chose to use Autumn Leaves and I coloured it using ProMarkers.  As you might have guessed I have had a delivery of some Spellbinders Circle Dies and I just had to try them out as soon as they arrived.  Had a lot of trouble with the cuts sticking in the dies but found out that Wax Paper is fabulous for this and so promptly purchased some of this and as you can see it does actually work!!  The Patterned Paper I have used is from Lili of the Valley's Enchantment Paper Pack and I cut the leaves using my Creative Expressions Vinery Die.  I added a Satin Bow and the Happy Birthday To You Sentiment to finish.



Thank you for sharing my card with me.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

Lisa - we are so glad you joined our team! And what a great card you made for your first post! It's really great your new circle dies came in time for this project... makes a super creative easel card. The lacy feel of the die cuts combined with the fall earth tones and your very light coloring style really gives a vintage feel to the project. Nicely done toots!
