Totally Papercrafts - Challenge #38 - Autumn

Good Morning to all's Friday again, time for another challenge over at Totally Paper Crafts, this time the theme is Autumn. Our sponsor this week is Sew Many Cards, and the prize is 5 digi images of the winners choice.

I have to tell you I really did struggle with this one. I looked through all my graphics and stamps, the only thing I had was Autumn Tilda and I had already used her recently. Halloween images just didn't jump out at me. I even got myself in a pickle over it - silly this card soon came to me. Why not just use Autumn colours!!

It's been said before that I am a perfectionist! I have made many cards, stood back to look at them, to find I am just not happy and rip them bad am I? So yes, when it comes to my cards and making the perfect bow ~ I am a perfectionist. But aren't we all. I like to keep people if my card is perfect, I know that the recipient will love it too.

I adore this Tilda - forgive me as I have forgotten which set she is from. Naughty me!

Used some lovely lace and vintage postcard for the front, not forgetting the beautiful heart stamp from Magnolia too. Most of the flowers are from Wildorchidcrafts. The middle flower is a Magnolia one, which is beautiful....I am going to have a go at making some with ribbon later today. Paper's are from a paper pack - Hot off the Press. I must admit I do have boat loads of them, so do need to use them more often as they are wonderful.

Coloured Tilda with Poly I wanted a softer feel.

So crafter's do pop over and take part in the Challenge. We can't wait to see your creations. Leave the design team a comment too as, they too have put in just as much work in their cards.
Happy Crafting.
Loads of Love
