Tilda in Leaves

Hi dear blogging friends,

Today I have a very autumnal card to share with you.  There are so many challenges about at the moments asking for Autumnal colours I thought I would have a go.

This card took me ages, it started off as one of those "fantastic ideas" but then it didnt materialise how I had imagined, it was going to be a gate fold card but it didnt quite work, then I decided on a double step card but that didnt quite turn out either - boo!

I ended up with this -

I'm not entirely happy with the card but I think its because it didnt end up the way I planned.
I left the bunting bare so I could add a sentiment when I know who it's for.

Images: Magnolia & Make It Crafty (Background digi)
Colouring: Pro Markers & Prisma Pencils
Dies: Marrianne, Whimsy
Punch: Woodware
Cardstock: Coredinations, Centura pearl (handmade base card)
Here you can just see how I laid accetate behind the tree die so I could cover it with punched leaves.
Inside I kept really CAS, just matted coredinations and used the negative of the tree die as a stencil.
I do hope you like my card and I really appreciate any comments you may leave.
Love and hugs xx Cara xx
