Guest blog spot!!

Hello everyone - this is a very late post as I meant it for Wednesday but I've had a wicked migraine on top of one bug after another.  Still fingers crossed that the worst has passed now.

So, on Wednesday I was guest blogger at the Crafty Bloggers network on their Guest Blogger Wednesday .
There's a piccie of little old me (LOL) and a bit about me and then the important bit - a card made for the Autumn season.  So I thought I wuold share it here too ;O)

I used a Creative Expressions stamp plate for the sentiment and the trees and the leaves.  The leaves were stamped and heat embossed on acetate with Cosmic Shimmer powder.  I then turned them over and covered the back in Zig two way glue and let it go clear.  I then dusted Cosmic Shimmer pearlescent powders over the glue to make the leaves look autumnal.  I then cut them out.  I used a black base card and added a strip of autumn acetate across the centre.  The topper was coloured with distress inks and then I flitter glued the sentiment and used gilding flakes.  The little trees were stamped and heat embossed with cosmic shimmer.  I added some crinkle ribbon and then the acetate leaves.  I went around the edges with a Sakura Gelly Roll silver pen.  I did the inside to match.  I really love the Autumn so this card really pleased me ;o)  I hope you like it too.
