Autumn is still here.....

Afternoon everyone, hope you're having a good Monday.   
I had to pop into college this morning for a couple of hours work, but was soon home and back in my craft room....yeah!
I thought when I made all of those Autumn cards a few weeks ago, that that was it for this year, but I've noticed on a few of the challenge blogs they're still asking for Autumn cards.....so, here we are, but definitely my last.......it's more like Winter here today anyway, and the leaves are long gone from the trees in our village.
Anyway, here is the card....hope you like it.
I treat myself to a SplodgeAway Mat recently, to see what all the fuss is about. It has definitely made a difference to my inking and blending, and made a sometimes tedious job so much easier. Think I'll be using it on most of my cards in future.




I made the backing card with Distress Inks, and Cosmic Shimmer mists then ran it through the Bigshot with a leafy mask. 


The ribbon started out as bright white, which I ink-dyed then stamped on.





The sentiment is from Creative Expresasions, combined with my lovely tree stamp from Inkylicious. (you can see the lovely 'glimmer mist', sparkling on the sentiment)




 I'm entering this card into the following challenges


Creative Stamp Friends are asking for 'Your Favourite Colour', and of course you know that these Autumn colours are my favourites

Gingerloft is asking for a 'Touch of Gold'


Thank you for popping by today, I'd love it if you could leave a comment xx
