Craft A Scene - Autumn Splendour - Week 1

Where has today gone? This should have been posted four hours ago, but somehow time just got away from me today. Still better late than never. It's a new month so time for a new challenge over on the Craft A Scene blog, and this month we're asking for your scenes with the theme of the Splendour of Autumn. For my card I used just two stamps and one of those was the sentiment. While I was at Ally Pally earlier this year I found this wonderful stamp on The Stamp Hut stand, from the English Traditional Collection. When I saw this it struck me that it would be suitable for all four seasons, so here it is coloured for Autumn. I used Spectrum Noir pencils for the colouring (I love these pencil's they go on so smoothly). I then mounted it onto some gold mirri card, and then some white before popping it onto a 6x6 green card base. The sentiment is from Stampscapes. I do hope that you will all pop over to the challenge blog and look at the wonderful cards the DT have made for  you inspiration.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

That stamp was certainly a good buy and it looks good in Autumnal colours - the saying is just right too.
