Autumn!

Welcome on this sunny autumn morning.

Today I decided to show an ATC.  I used a buff coloured card for the base with a scrap of a shimmery gold paper for the background.

I added the pieces of silver edged ribbon and then punched the top left hand corner with my Cropodile and added a mustard coloured brad.  The threads are a selection of autumn coloured bits from my stash.

For the topper I used a small piece of very thin wood which was cut from a box which originally contained a  made chilli.  I used some strong red tape to stick the wood to a piece of card to add strength then inked up a reverse stamp with an Adirondack die inkpad.  The tiny dragonflies are stamped with a tiny stamp from a Hero Arts clear set.

I would like to enter my ATC into the following challenges:-
Pixie's Snippet's Playground Week 196
Try it on Tuesday challenge which this time is "Autumn"

Absolutely lovely Barb! And I'm a lover of dragonflies too :)

Psst, the reason I'm convinced the paper on my rocker card is upside down is 'cos of the way it was glued into the paper pad - think I'll take the hair shirt off now though!
