AAA Cards Challenge #99 - Autumn Colours

Here in the UK we're beginning to see the start of the beautiful colours of Autumn in the hedgerows and trees. And the air has that distinctly fresher feel in the mornings and evenings - I always say it's the time of year for layers of clothes as you need more at these times than in the middle of the day.

So with all that in mind AAA Cards is plumping for Autumn Colours as its theme for the next fortnight.

The sponsor for this challenge is Uniko, so of course I used Uniko stamps on my card:

They're actually the leaves from the Paradise set given a distinctly uncharacteristic twist with Autumn colours. So pretty!

I masked off the rectangle on my base card and then stamped fairly randomly with the leaf and flower petal. I added a banner with a heat embossed sentiment to finish off. 

Stamps: Uniko, Paradise, Simply Said
Inks: SU, crushed curry, pumpkin pie, baked brown sugar, cherry cobbler; Versamark, clear
Embossing: Ranger superfine, white
Embellishments: Nuvo Drops, dark walnut

The rest of the AAA Cards DT have also made cards to inspire you to play along, see them all HERE. And we have the wonderful Hannelie guesting with us for this challenge. So go take a look and then break out those Autumn colours and enjoy creating!

Thanks for looking today, I really appreciate your visit to my blog.  And keep crafting!
