Autumn Breezes at Sir Stampalot

Good Morning and welcome to October! This month at Sir Stampalot we have a theme of  Autumn breezes with buttons and a bow. Prepare yourself for lots of photos as I wanted to show you all the different parts of my criss-cross card!
Here it is sat on my window ledge. I started off with some pieces of glossy card stock and stamped some leaves (Hero Arts Clear design: scattered leaves) using Big and Juicy Spice. I then inked up my brayer, took a bit of the colour off and brayered diagonally across each panel.
The small leaf stamps on the central panel are from the same set and the corrugated card band around the card was coloured with creative colour sprays(Crafty Notions). The little leaves were cut with a newish die from Joy crafts using pearlescent paper.
On the reverse side of the central panel I cut an oval from some Artylicious Essence of Nature paper and placed more leaves around it, giving an area for a sentiment. The orange buttons were from very old stash (My Mum's button box, inherited about ten years ago, but the buttons are probably circa 1960!)

So there you go. Hope you like it. I certainly had fun with my Brayer! You can probably see I got a bit carried away! Now, drum roll please, as I'm sure you will want to see the amazing stash you can win this time round...
Isn't it wonderful? So, if you would like to be in with a chance of winning this lovely stash, take a look at the fabulous inspiration from my fabulous teamies over on the Sir Stampalot challenge blog and get creating!
