I Love ProMarkers Challenge #87 - Autumnal Colours

So my Guest Design Team slot continues and this week's challenge is Autumnal Colours. My second favourite time of year (after winter), like a lot of crafters I take a great deal of inspiration from the glorious colour palette that nature provides us all with. There's nothing like going out in a blaze of glory and this time of year has always been special for me; nights closing in and getting cosy on the sofa, dark mornings so you can sleep in and all the festivities to come. Being asked to make a card in autumn colours was something I had never done before, I normally make what I fancy when I fancy doing it so being part of the Design Team has helped to focus my creativity and I am loving that aspect of the challenges.

So here's the card - Make It Crafty provided the digi download image of the boot-house and Magnolia (obviously) provided my beloved Tilda. This particular stamp was bought for me by a lovely lady called Audrey who goes to my local monthly craft club (holla out to my girls (and Brian)), she bought it as a thank-you and I was delighted because it was so unexpected and she actually managed to get one of the few stamps I didn't already own! Well done Audrey.

The sentiment is a Lily of the Valley and I am a little obsessed with circular sentiments at the moment, don't know where that's come from i'm sure!! It has been finished off with a Basic Grey gem swirl and a Marianne Die Cut, hope you like it, see you again real soon.
