Hello Autumn

 Morning all.  The weather around here has definitely turned a little Autumnal lately and so has our new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge. Caz has given us 'Hello Autumn' for this month.  Time to break out the leafy stamps I think.  I've had this stamp set for several years. It was a magazine freebie and I still love it.

Having coloured and cut out two leaves I wanted them to be the focal point. I used a spare die cut square and - rather experimentally - pressed a green ink pad in the middle. It wasn't perfect but, when I placed my leaves down it looked like they'd got a bit of a halo.  I loved the effect and I probably won't ever be able to replicate it. I stamped some little accents from a Wplus9 stamp set and added a leaf shaped sequin on a bow made of embroidery thread.

I am so chuffed with the result for this card.  I didn't have any plan in my head and I probably couldn't get this result again.  

Now it's your turn.  Please show us your Autumnal cards.

Thanks for reading.
