The Colours of Autumn

**
We're right in the middle of Autumn here
in Australia and as it's my favourite season
I thought it was the perfect time to make
this card.
**
The background paper comes with a story.
I had wanted to make a scrapbook page a
few years ago and I knew exactly what the
paper was to look like - the only problem
was I couldn't find it anywhere, that is
until I saw it in a Close to my Heart ad.
So Ifound the paper but this created a bigger
problem - CTMH don't sell in Australia.
I searched and searched for weeks to find this
paper and then I found it for sale on Ebay
in America- by a lady who has since
turned out to be one of my dearest friends.
To this day I still tell her she was my best
purchase I've made on Ebay!!!!!!

I like this weeks sketch challenge from SCS, nice clean
lines - it's a good sketch for a busy background like the
one I've used.
All of my stamps are from various Magnolia collections,
which are available from Roses on Paper.
The gorgeous new Butterfly collection is on order and
should be in the store very soon.
