Flutter By Wednesday - Autumn Colors

A new Flutter By Wednesday challenge begins today. Thanks to all of you who joined in last week's hop! The challenge for this week is to use autumn colors. Create your cards using fall colors and a butterfly or fairy and link it up to the FBW blog.

I'm SO not ready for fall! I started with a piece of ivory cardstock. I stamped the butterfly (Inkadinkado) and the sentiment (Stampendous) with Pumpkin Pie ink from Stampin' Up! I punched the border with a Fiskars punch and added the scoring with my Martha Stewart scoring tool. I added Pumpkin Pie cardstock only under the punched-out area. I matted with Crushed Curry and Close to Cocoa. The patterned paper is from a Recollections seasons pad and is matted with Close to Cocoa. Can't wait to see your creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Love the colours, Lynette, and also the tartan background. Many thanks for your lovely comment - it's all happening now and soooo much to do! I shan't be around for a while now, but see you on the other side!!

Such a pretty card. I love the rich colors of fall but not ready either. But I am ready for this heat to go away and some cooler weather - just not coats etc.

Great use of the tartan DP for the background for this lovely card. But I'm with you I'm not at all ready for fall.

Love this! Wonderful fall paper. Inkadinkado makes the most beautiful stamps along these lines. I just bought some new birds yesterday, in fact. Love your scoring and the leaf border to set off the image, too.
