Autumn days!

Our challenge this week at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGNS is all about recycling!
My daughter had given me a big lump if sort of mesh like material from her art stash during the summer and I have not had the chance to do something with it till now.


I stamped some leaves using coloured inks in various sizes and cut them out. Then added some depth with promarkers and arranged them on the bottom of my card. The little leaves were punched from autumn coloured card. The card itself is kraft which I embossed. The image is a right cutie and she is available from Crafty Sentiments here.


 I hope you all get time to join in our challenge and use up those little items we all hide away to recycle.
Embellishments - punches, stamps, inks, embossing folder
Medium - she is coloured with promarkers
