Quirky Leaves and Autumn Colours The Finished Card.

Our 20th Challenge this year over on the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog, (which started yesterday) is set by Monica. Fall, or Autumn as we call it here. I was late again and didn't finish my card til Monday, so if you scroll down you'll see I was almost on time and had actually started my card (printed out the digi!) and this is how it turned out! It's a nice easy challenge so we hope to see you there! 
I placed, then printed Pumpkin Swirls from Kaz Kraft (Stitchy Bear our sponsor) over some freebie papers from PaperCrafts Inspirations Magazine. I've 3D-ed the pumpkins, coloured with Promarkers and added Stickles Glitter, ribbon and punched out leaves.
 Although Stitchy Bear sent us some lovely papers to use and my phone downloaded them, my old computer couldn't find them so with time fast running out, I opted for some leaves and *pumpkins papers (*saved as jhosFord-cutepumpkin-bg8 and luckily already printed out!) which I found whilst hunting through my folders. Most likely freebies from Scrapwow years ago. 
The orange ribbon and the die cut letters to make the Autumn sentiment came from a tin case set of mostly orange ribbon, cords,  threads, diecuts and beads from Laura Ashley. (Years old, never used them!)
I've also added a stamp by Hero Arts (E2322) along the top of the card using an autumn scene in aged mahogany Distress Ink, which I also used to colour the larger punched out leaves, plus orange and green Promarkers. As you can see I've left the inside blank with just the leaves backing paper. I think that's it! Only one of these pictures has Glitter on you didn't notice! Thank you for stopping by!
