Autumn Leaves

Morning all.  It's time, once again, for a new challenge over at Cardz4guyz.  We're very seasonal at the moment and the challenge is 'Autumn/Fall Leaves'.  

I walked into work yesterday and the trees were looking stunning in their autumn finery.  There are acorns and conkers all over the place and some colourful berries on the bushes.  

Anyway, back to the business in hand.  My mum used to do parchment craft and she would create lots of flowers and leaves and paint them in lovely shimmery colours. She kept them in a little box to use on future projects.  When she stopped creating with parchment (she's turned to crochet nowadays) she gave the little box to me.  I was at a loss as to what to do with them but, it turns out, they are perfect in a shaker card.  The image is from 2 Cute Ink but it must have been a club exclusive as I can't find it in the shop.  I think it goes really well with the leaves - although I know they are maple leaves, not oak leaves.  You can't have it all.

I hope you like what I've created.

Please pop over and join us.  The very talented ladies on the Design Team have created some wonderful inspiration.

Thanks for reading.
