By the Cute and Girly Challenge - Autumn Glory

I know this stamp is getting rather a lot of use at the moment, but I do love it! This is my card for the 'By the Cute and Girly Challenge - Autumn Glory'. I think it is going to be my sister- in-Law's birthday card too.
I used:
Stamps: Lovely as a tree - stampin' up!, Fall Season - Inkadinkado, Maple leaf - Graphicus, Rounded leaf - Non Sequitur
Punch: Martha Stewart - Doily lace
Cuttlebug embossing folder - leaves
Ink: Kaleidacolor - Autumn leaves, Blue Breeze, Versafine Black
Sari ribbon
Gold Tulip paint
White Gel pen
Corner stickers (not sure whose - been in my stash for years!)

Thanks for looking! Hope you like it!

This is beautiful Sally. I'm not surprised that stamp is a favourite. It works so well with the cuttlebugged background too.
Your SIL will love it.

Oh what gorgeous autumnal colours - I adore it. I must find my stamp and get it out and use it - you truly do inspire me.

I somehow managed to lose your comment on my blog and another - don't know how - thank you for your lovely comments and support. I haven't been visiting blogs for a few days - so apologies - lots of catching up to do

Hi Sally - your tree scene is gorgeous. You can never use a stamp like this too much. I love the effect you've created on the Cuttlebugged piece too. Thank you for joining us at the BTC&G challenge this month.

Hi Sally

Sorry that I am a bit slow in commenting but as you know I have been away for two weeks and only just returned.

I love your card.

Great background colours and the trees are just perfect for autumn.

Thank you for taking part in the very first "By the Cute & Girly" challenge. I hope you play along again next month (or later this month if you get the urge!).

Love Jules xx
