Spyder's Other Corner Sponsors {Pin} Spirations!

Morning bloggers! I, me, myself and Dragonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner are very pleased to be Sponsoring, along with QKR Stampede...
{Pin} Spirations! 
This time their theme is Autumn. Pop over to the Challenge Blog and you'll find a lovely autumn picture to give you inspiration, as well as some fabulous creations using my digital images and images from QKR
Here's the card I've made especially for this seasonal challenge. Autumn is certainly on it's way here in Southern England. The sudden chill in the morning, the dewy spider webs and of course my soggy wet trouser bottoms when I'm out walking dogs, is proof of that!
I've used The Happy Heart Tree #4012 which a drew after watching a rather silly pigeon in my garden trying to build a nest in our rose bush! Well, it is almost a tree! I'm happy to say the pigeon moved to next door's very over grown apple tree in the end.
I found some shimery bronzey papers both embossed and made them the main colours, then  picked autumn shades to colour in the tree. There's a little smudge of Stickles glitter on the 'windswept' dust and leaves around the tree. I then layer the topper with a slightly lighter goldy-brown and black and fixed it to the front of the card over some brown sparkly ribbon. I wasn't very happy with the edges of the ribbon, which is why I punched out all those leaves to frame the picture. I used two tiny Woodware punches. I remembered I had a little tree charm and (believe it or not) I found it in about five seconds! Which, seeing the state of my craft room, is a wonder in it's self!
The inside papers I used papers were freebies, 6x6 paper stack, from a magazine. I continued with the some colours to layer around the square inserts. The rubber stamped Autumn image is by Hero Arts and has also been layered in the same way.
The font I used is a freebie. It's called Airplanes In the Night Sky (I've missed out sky in the picture) You can download it HERE or just Google the correct name. Hoping to add a few challenges as soon as I'm back. Not sure when this post goes live, so I've left it to go live about 10ish! Sorry if I'm a bit early! Thanks for stopping by!!

  4. Pigeons are incredibly silly when nesting, and collared doves aren't much better, their nests are only a few twigs and the eggs fall out often!

    I love the tree image with the pigeon, haven't seen that before. Nice card too, with all the leaves, I have that punch too.

  7. Spyder, this card is so beautiful - colours, theme, embellishments .... you name it ... all gorgeous. I am never going to look at cards using your stunning digi without bringing your inspiration to mind -- your story has really made me chuckle and I'm imagining you watch that daft pigeon and your mind working on turning an amusing sight into a thing of beauty. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)

  8. Like the Tree w/ the wonderful Autumn swirl feel to it. I enjoyed seeing & photographing some baby Robins in a Mini Magnolia Tree of ours. Saw the 3 eggs when they were first laid, watched them hatch, saw the babies w/ eyes unopened, then opened, being fed by the parents & was there when they flew out of the nest. Thank you for entering OSAAT Ch#181 Autumn.
