Autumn Colours

Hello blog fiends,

The warm, splendid colours of autumn is the challenge theme at Sugar Creek Hollow this fortnight. Your project can also be about fall activities or scenes as long as it is  in the vintage or shabby style. I love the warm earthy tones of autumn and the image from Bumble Button Antique and Vintage Graphics was so perfect for the theme.The lovely outdoor scene with the children just stole my heart. To enhance the shades of brown in the image I added a die cut garden fence and  bird-cage hanging from a brass chain. The roses are from ‘I am Roses’ and the Forget-me-nots from Petaloo.

Sue Butler is our guest designer at Sugar Creek Hollow  for this challenge. She created a beautiful card for our challenge and you can see more of her lovely work on her blog Scrumplescrunch. If you like to create in the vintage or shabby style and you need some inspiration for the fall colours or activities challenge a visit to Sugar Creek Hollow will be worthwhile. Hope to see your creation.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    I love this card Amelia – beautiful work. The flowers and the colours are gorgeous. I was so taken by the image too that I trawled through the whole of Bumble Button to try to find it – to no avail. Is there any chance you could email me a link to the particular page it is on, or add it to your blog please?

    Jou kaartjies is so inspirerend en pragtig om na te kyk. Graag wil ek net weet waar ek die Gazebo Spellbinders D’Lite dies hier in die Kaap in die hande kan kry Het al paar plekke probeer maar met geen sukses. As jy vir my ‘n email adres of telefoonnommer kan gee sal ek dit waardeer Groete uit die mooie Kaap
