A Little Something - Grateful For You Autumnal Card

by Joanne James22. August 2015 13:26

Well, it's the sunniest day that we've had all week here in the UK and here I am - with an Autumn card! I used the sketch layout over at Mojo Monday for my inspiration today:

More sneak peeks today, this time of some of the wonderful Autumn papers and accessories coming up in the new Autumn-Winter seasonal catalogue that launches in a couple of weeks time. Here is today's card:

I used Old Olive for my base with a mat of Daffodil Delight and took the colours for my card today from the colour scheme of the new Into The Woods Designer Series paper; gorgeous browns, greens, yellow, orange with a pop of purple - I pulled this colour out and used the new Rich Razzleberry co-ordinating Into the Woods Cotton Ribbon for the diagonals on my card; this ribbon has great texture! I coloured my sentiment in using a variety of Stampin' Write markers - this is from a set called 'A Little Something', a great selection of stamps that also co-ordinate with the new Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies. I finished with a trio of Into The Woods Wood Elements, etched with some lovely few acorn and leaf images. I just love the bright colours of this card, with plenty of white within the pattern to balance it.

Right - I'm off for a bike ride this afternoon with family and friends, followed by an entirely vegetarian BBQ. This is something of a rarity in the James household, but since I'm entertaining one of my dearest long-standing vegetarian friends who I once served a ham sandwich to (and she ate it because she was too polite to point out she was vegetarian!!!) I have been making up for it ever since. Not a piece of Quorn or tofu in sight - I'll let you know tomorrow what she thinks of the vegetarian feast we have planned! 

Back tomorrow with a new challenge over at The Paper Players. I am the hostess this week and I have a great sketch challenge for you, so you're going to want to come back and take a look! Until then, happy stampin'!
