Autumn Blessings

Hello there,

Today I have an Autumn card to share with you that I made for this weeks Freshly Made sketches. It been about a month since I was last able to play along (where does the time go!) so was pleased I had some time this weekend to craft :)

HOTP - Feathers Stamp Set
Clearly Besotted Stamps - Autumn Blessings
MFT Die-namics - Blueprint 13
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax
Neenah Cardstock - Desert Storm
Simon Says Stamp Cardstock - White Woodgrain
Double Sided Adhesive Paper
Memento Ink - Rich Cocoa
Simon Says Stamp Ink - Orange Peel, Sunshine, Green Apple, Beanstalk, Green Leaf
MFT Ink - Daffodil
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick
Burlap, String and Button - From Stash
Zig Wink of  Stella Glitter Pen - Clear
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins - Gold 4mm

I'm not sure why but I got the urge to ink up my unused feather stamp set from HOTP which was a free gift. I know it would have been more appropriate to use leaves but well, I like to be different! I sponged each stamp with three colours before stamping onto white card. I then fuzzy cut them out and give them a light coating with a clear wink of stella pen.

I adhered a piece of burlap to some double sided adhesive paper and then die-cut it out using a fishtail from blueprints 13. I adhered the fishtail to a stitched rectangle of white woodgrain card. I used string a button from my stash to create the border at the top of the card.  I stamped one of the sentiments from Autumn Blessings Stamp set onto to end of a stitched fishtail using Rich Cocoa ink and glued to just under the string on the right hand side of the card.  I then arranged to feathers and adhered them under the button. I mounted this panel to my card base and lastly added some gold sequins for a little extra bling :) I hope you like it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
