All Dressed up Guest DT spot

I won.

I know it's a random draw but still very excited to be a winner on All Dressed up Challenge 66.This is the second time as I was one of the top three for Challenge 65 and I think I am still pinching myself. I just love making cards and by entering challenges it pushes me to think out side the box. I guess we all get stuck in a rut occasionally so having to make something different is fun. I have used one of the digis I won called Autumn Girl as we are enjoying some lovely Autumn weather down here in Australia after a very hot summer. First I coloured a panel with Oxide distress inks in Autumn tones, used some of it to stamped some leaves from the SU Gently Falling set and cut them out. The rest I used to adhere the printed image too. She was coloured with copics then cut out using a stitched die from Simon Says stamps and this was then matted to a green piece of card for some contrast and on to a pale grey card base.
