Crafty Calendar DT Post

I was thrilled to be invited to join the Crafty Calendar Challenge DT.  The November theme is 'Autumn Colours' and this my first card as a DT member.  
    
I started with a cream card blank.  The stamps are all from Lavinia, 'Vine' and 'Autumn Fall', stamped with Versafine and Adirondack ink pads on cream card.  I used an Embossalicious e/f, 'Delicate Floral' for the lower half of the background and die cut the edge with a MB 'Stitched Country Border' die. Finally, I added  'Red Berry' and 'Buttermilk' Nuvo Crystal Drops and a sentiment. 

A new Crafty Calendar Challenge is posted on the first Saturday of every month, so I would love to see your 'Autumn Colours' creations there.  There is a prize for most challenges and the winner is announced at the beginning of each new challenge.  You can see lots of inspiration from the DT HERE.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  2. I don't know what that thing is that the fairy is floating on but we used to call those whirly gigs. They'd float down from some tree that I can't remember the name of either. Anyhow..................very pretty card. Nice layout and embossing. Love the stamped leaves. [Bunny]

    1. In the U.K. they're from the sycamore tree. Think across The Pond, they're more commonly seen on maple trees. We used to call them 'helicopters' xx
