The colours of Autumn

Now the nights are drawing in and the chill is in the air its a perfect time for crafting. I also think its a great time of a year to get out in the country and see the changing colour of the trees. These are some pictures that I took near my home recently.

The card I have made is inspired by the Autumn trees. I created a brayered background using Big N Juicy ink and then used the same pad and the Crafty Individuals Trees stamp to create a row of trees in autumnal colours. Once finished I cut the image into three and layered each piece onto brown cardstock.  The final touch was the greeting (stamped in the same way) and the raffia and a button.

I am entering this card into the following challenges :
Paper Pretties - Fall Inspiration
Allsorts - Fall Colours
Artistic Stamper - Natural World
Cupcake Craftroom - Anything Goes in Autumn
Live and Love Crafts  - Halloween / Autumn Colours
