This week's Efforts

This was supposed to be for last week's Cute Card Challenge to use autumn colours but I never quite got round to uploading it. The background paper is stamped. One of the things I really enjoy about stamping is that you can start with a white piece of paper and end up with something quite colourful. I've use chalks on the background paper and brush markers on the small squares. Stamp by Stamping Studio, Woodware and TAC. Used my Cuttlebug border embossing folders for the first time too. The top one's crooked which kinda bugs me cos I do like things to be perfect :)

I created this card for yesterday's sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. It was quite an easy sketch to work with and I think it's quite an elegant card. I'm running out of the little pearls which I got from Lakeland but they don't seem to do crafty stuff any more.
