Try Stampin on Tuesday #10

Good afternoon, it’s a cold and very windy day outside today so what else could I do but make a card, and perfect timing as I was running out of time to make this weeks Try Stampin on Tuesday challenge. I have two sick family members in bed and fast asleep so I managed to get a few hours to create.

I thought my card suited the day outside perfectly, its Autumn here in New Zealand so all the leaves are starting to fall off the trees, which my daughter loves, her bag is often filled with them when she comes home from day-care.

for the leaves I have used Whisper White Cardstock then sponged in Pear Pizzazz and then very carefully lightly sponged in Cajun Craze around the edges to give the changing colour effect you get in Autumn. For the sky I have used scallop ovals and a sponged around them to create the clouds. The grass is also sponged on.

Here is the Sketch:

Here is my card:
