Just a quick card that will be my entry for the new Crafty Calendar Challenge. This challenge has been started by Georgia who is just 13! The theme this month is Autumn with the option of plants/vegetation.
The Owl stamp is from an Inkadinkadoo set of birds and the foliage I've stamped around the image is from another stamp set but I've long since lost the packaging. I mounted it on some backing paper from my stash and layered it over a green panel that had been embossed with the cuttlebug swirls folder. I applied some green Tim Holtz ink with Cut n Dry to the embossing just to lift it a bit more. Finally I added an Embelliscrap leaf which I inked with the same T.H. ink.
Unfortunately the colours in this photo are not very good, the cardstock is cream but it looks white here.
Thanks for looking.

  6. Hi Fiona -- this is a darling card -- and certainly well-fitted to the autumn theme -- the stamping around the edges of the images is very clever.
