PDCC 51: autumn leaves

We've finally got the crispness to the air that signals autumn - I just love the blue skies we've been having, and the sun shining on the leaves that are just starting to turn :)

It was my turn to choose the inspiration photo this week in the 'cafe'.  I  love leaves that are becoming skeleton leaves but aren't there yet so still retain some colour.  This leaf has such unusual hint of a greenish colour remaining, 'ish' being a key part of the colour description this week!  Brown and blue are one of my favourite colour combos so this beige and soft blue are perfect for me.

We're sponsored this week by 'Creative Cuts and More' and I chose to use the scalloped edged card.  The patterning on the card is from one of my newest stamps, an enormous Impression Obsession flourish stamp that is designed to cover your whole card :)  The leaves are from a sheet of Bo Bunny DP - it was the green that caught my eye and seemed to be the correct shade.  Some checked paper by g.c.d studios and some texture added with a Lost Coast ledger stamp and I was done :)

Don't forget to check out the work of all our other designers this week, there's some yummy stuff out there :)

It's the Play Date Birthday party next week - can't believe we've been challenging you all for nearly a year now!  Look out for a special post on Thursday 21st October 2010. :)
