Autumn Fairy

Hello everyone, hope you're all OK. I've been very busy making samples for the new Polka Doodles CD which has its' first airing on Create and Craft TV on Monday 20 September at 10am. If you've got time it's well worth a look as this is the best one yet of Nikky's gorgeous crafting CDs.

I had some fantastic news last Friday as I found to my great surprise that my Flora Doodle card for the URLooking Good challenge at Raise The Bar had made the Top 3 and the prize is to be a Guest Bar Tender for the new challenge tomorrow. I can't tell you the theme yet but it's sure to be popular as it's something we all like!

I've only just got this made in time for the current challenge at Raise The Bar with the colours Orange, Brown and Green as I managed to lose my box of Distress inks and only found it this morning.
It also fits another challenge and I've put all the links below the details of my card.
I made the background paper by stamping a skeleton leaf by B Line Designs in Dried Marigold and Crushed Olive Distress inks then over stamped with a skeleton leaf Rubber Stampede in Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo. I then sponged a little Dried Marigold over the top.
The mat panel round the image is made in the same way using glossy card and Pumpkin and Olive Green Stazon ink. I stamped the fairy by Judikins in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured her with Promarkers.
I then stamped my favourite maple leaf by Personal Impressions in Rich Cocoa several time, coloured then with Promarkers and cut them out.
I assembled the card as you see, adding a border punched with the Martha Stewart wrought iron punch, inked with Vintage Photo and embossed with clear powder.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Raise The Bar - Orange, Brown and Green
Creative Card Crew - Autumn
Thanks for looking.

Fliss every time I see your blog now I think of that wonderful URL card you made to match it!! :) I love this card, it's so dreamy with that great image. Your leaves perfectly embrace fall, and what a great way to use the MS punch. Thank you so much for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!
