Autumn Colours at Craftalicious

Afternoon Peeps,

I am having a chill-laxing day today.  We travelled to Fulham yesterday for the football match of Everton v Fulham, courtesty of a supplier of mine from work.  It was a good game, well sort of, Everton were all over Fulham but still couldn't manage to rattle the onion bag!  We got home at 7:15 and had to do a quick turnaround for the School Reunion party, but I figured they had waited 29 years so an extra half hour or so wouldn't do any harm, lol.  As it was, it turned out a good night and my boots couldn't do no more dancing after 2am, so we headed home and this morning I felt I deserved a lay in before tackling the housework,  hence my late post, I'm behind with everything.

Today is the first day of the new move of the Craftalicious Challenges to a Sunday, fortnightly.  This week's theme has been set by Jan, the creator of Craftalicious and is "Fall Colours".  Here's my attempt:-

We are being sponsored by Some Odd Girl and I have chosen Mae Day, as I thought the sunflowers would be a great choice to fit in with the colour scheme.  I have coloured Mae with copics, of course.

Ingredients Used:-
Image - Some Odd Girl
Papers are Crate Paper
Making Memories Distress Tool
Gold Stickles
Flowers were made using 3 different size retro punches, inked and then wet and scrunched.
Martha Stewart Frond Punch
Doily, Raffia, Trim, pearls from stash

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

One Stitch at a time - Anything Goes
Stamptacular - Fall Colours
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
A spoonful of sugar - Anything Goes
Tuesday Morning Sketches - Make your own flowers
Digital Tuesday - It's all about Girls
AiFactory - Anything Goes
Paper Romance - Handmade Flowers
Alphabet - V for Vintage
Stamp Something - Fall colours
Scrappy Frogs - Make your own flowers
Whoopsi Daisy - Flowers
Stamp It Crazy - Anything Goes
