High Hopes Challenge #43~ Fall Into Autumn

We have another new start for High Hopes challenge, YAY !! I hope you all had a wonderful Summer and it's so great to be back for our new challenge!!! Before I tell you about this weeks challenge we would like to say a fond farewell to Niki and Janette. I miss you loads girls!!! We have some great news too and welcome Amy Leggate to our happy team.

This week challenge is Fall into Autumn.

If you don't have any suitable stamps for this challenge don't worry.... you can use any High Hopes image and use Autumnal colours/embellishments.The random winner of this weeks challenge will receive the below cute stamp - Book Worm and Sentiment "This book belongs to:".

I am not so good in making autumn card, I think:-))and I hope my card is qualified as autumn card:-))

I used My Mind's Eye Pretty Please patterned paper to make the background, and also used brown and orange paper to emboss the leaf by using cuttlebug machine. I used Copic Ciao markers to color the stamped image, distressed with Vintage photo distress ink on the edge. I also used raffia to tie the two sides of the ribbon. The sentiment is also from High Hopes rubberstamps.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to pop on other Diva's blog to view their wonderful creation.

Happy Stamping.
