DCM forever autumn

It's Friday again which can only mean one thing! It's dare time again! This week the dare is set by Sue :o)

Forever Autumn.

I decided on this one after hearing the Justin Haywood song of the same name playing on the radio. I couldn’t get it out of my mind and kept singing it as I was working.

So now I’m daring you to make a card that depicts Autumn.
It can be an Autumn scene or it can be something completely different but using a palette of Autumn colours……the choice is yours!


I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if a few of you are singing along by the time you’ve finished either, I know some of the DT were!


















I kept it simple this week and I have to say I loved working with these colours! Lush :o)

Card - orange Bazzill
Paper - not sure - I've had it for years!
Stamp - Papertartsy
Green flower - Poppycrafts
Orange felt flower - fell off a pair of Maddie's tights and rather than reattach it I snaffled it for crafting purposes (ssh) hehehe

fell off the tights made me giggle. I love this card - it is autumny and funky! If the paper is double sided then I reckon it is American Crafts. It looks like their sort of thing

Well it most certainty worked keeping things simple this week Jozza because your card is really effective.

The intense colours work so well together but I can’t help feeling sorry for poor Maddie who’s now running around with flowers on only one leg of her tights……..I hope you’re going to buy the poor love a new pair!
