Autumn colours over at Pollycrafts Monday!

(Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT post!)


It's another Pollycraft Monday Challenge  and this week the uber talented Sheena has chosen the theme of...

AUTUMN COLOURS

So we want to see reds, oranges, browns, etc in your creation - just perfect for our British summer now!!  I used Sonny Honeycloud Butterflies...

 
 


This is just like the type of outfits I wear when we take our dogs for a walk in the autumn - except I normally wear my wellies cos it's normally raining!  I matched this gorgeous image up with a sentiment from the Sonny Says sentiment set - I love the hand written look of these and much neater than my own writing!  For my autumn colours I used BasicGrey Mellow papers - so rich and gorgeous!

I hope you can join us this week - we are being sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts who are offering the lucky winner £10 voucher to spend.




I am entering my card into the following challenges:



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Mellow paper pad
Mediums: Copics, Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Accents: clip and brads from stash

Tools: Martha Stewart grass and fence border punches, My Favorite Things Upsy-Daisy dies (from Dies to Die For here), Nestabilitie rectangle die inside card, Distressing Tool
