Hello dear friends,

I am so  happy to be back in blog land after two months of not making any cards. I can tell you, I really missed my crafting time and all my friends in cyber space. Hope you are all doing well. Today I share a fall card to a few challenges. Autumn or fall themed cards are one of my favourites to create. Although my mojo is quite low after such a long time not crafting, I enjoyed making this card.  Maybe the autumn theme was a good choice to start crafting again.

I keep it simple with a striped background layer,  a lovely sentiment and a die cut bicycle. The warm, splendid colours of the autumn leaves are created by painting a few scraps of papers with my watercolour paints and then die cut the leaves with different dies. The browns, oranges, reds and yellows are so warm and earthy and give such a rustic feel to the whole scene.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The bicycle and autumn leaves

The sentiment

The inside

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your thoughts in the comments. Have a wonderful day!

Kind regards,

    I’m so glad you’re back to crafting again, Amelia, and I hope to see more. It can be too easy to get out of the habit. It’s nice to see this lovely fall card today with its suggestion of a beautiful day, out for a bike ride, enjoying the season. So nice!
