CFC #19 ~ Falling to Pieces....

 


CAS-ual Friday's challenge is fun this week... to use paper piecing with a Fall theme.  Well here in NZ we are heading to spring... so it took a bit of thinking to come up with something suitable.... helped though by some Tiffany Doodle digi images I won this week.
Autumn card

As I wanted to enter Hero Arts challenge this month~Anything Autumn, I combined some leaf stamps and my TD images.  The frame and sentiment are digital.  I combined the two images in Word and printed once on white card and once on some green PP from Cosmo Cricket Pixielious.  I then pieced the frame and leaf onto the white card.  Coloured the rest of the frame with a Marvey Le Plume II marker.  I then cut the lot out.   My base card is pumpkin colour and I added some texture with HA Raindrop background in Tea Dye distress ink.   I then took  the smallest leave from HA Three leaves set and stamped it on the PP.  I cut them out ( does that count for paper piecing?)  I bunched the leaves together and added to my base then popped the frame.  

Today brought even more happy mail.... cards and a couple of little stamp sets... thank you so much Anne and Donna... and Brenda.  You made my day.   Mail was there when I got home from my first walk of the day.... wet and cold as I got caught in a shower of rain.  Made me feel better.

Enjoy your week
