I love the colours of Autumn and as it's my mum's birthday next month, thought I would make a cute card for my dad to give her. The gorgeous image is from a set called 'Autumn Antics' by David Parkins. They were a free set of digi images with Simply Cards mag few years ago. The other images are all so cute too - I found it difficult choosing which one to use. So it does pay to sort through those mags ;-)) as you find little treasures like this.
The paper is also freebie with Quick Cards - Issue 91. If you register you can download them and they are gorgeous. I am going through a glitter phase at the moment, probably because it's so dull and miserable outside! I've used a load of Ultra Fine Glitter - Chocolate Brown on edges of card.
The delish ribbon and gems were part of my fab prize from Ready-Teddy-Go Challenge. Thanks girls! Sentiment was made on computer.
Colouring is a mixture of Copics and Spectrums. G82, G85 Green Copics. E00, E02 for skin. I can't remember the browns I used! and I only coloured it yesterday!! I think it was E57 Copic mixed with one of the lighter golden Spectrums. I got so excited mixing them together that I forgot to make a note LOL
I also decorated the inside to match.
I would like to apologise if any of you visited my Blog on Sunday and noticed a lot of my photos were missing!!! Stupid me only went and deleted my photos from the Picasa Album!! I did do it after going to the pub on Saturday. It was the beer festival and I had a couple of strong beers! Don't even remember how I got onto the Picasa Album page!!! LOL but I remember thinking - oh those look like all the photos off my webpage!! Oops! It took me most of Sunday to replace the important ones. Was really fed up! Anyway, now you know why I don't drink alcohol very often !!!! hee hee.
