Warm Autumn Colours at Stamping Sensations

Good Morning! How are you feeling this Sunday morning? Here it is time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations where our theme is Warm Autumn Colours. It was a great chance to use tree or leaf stamps so I am very happy!!!
Here is my card. I started off by running the Imagination Crafts leaf swirl stencil through the cuttlebug with a 5" square card and my no more shims mat. I then used my ink dusters and kaleidacolor autumn leaves ink to make the embossing pop.
For the main panel I sprayed the reverse side of some centura pearl card with Dylusions and glimmer mist, before stamping and embossing the Imaginations crafts Leaves decoupage stamp set. I added a bit of red glaze to the ladybird and a bit of ribbon from my stash across the top.
When you tilt it you can see a little bit of the sparkle from the glimmer mist.

This month we are sponsored by the very lovely people at Imagination Crafts, who are offering a whopping £35 voucher to spend in their store...wish I could take part! 

Do pop over to the Challenge blog and take a look at the wonderful inspiration that my team mates have created, and I will look forward to visiting to see your fabulous autumnal creations!
Thanks for looking!

Lovely way to use the Imagination Crafts decoupage stamps, Sally - I've got a few of those so I might have to "borrow" this idea!!

Oooh this is lush Sally! My absolute favourite colour palette in nature and you have replicated it perfectly. Love that decoupage stamp (need it on my wish list) and the gorgeous stencil already lives in my stash ;-)
