Autumn Colours - Prepping Early! with Sheena Douglass Stamps

Hi Everyone

Today Mandy-Jane is sharing with you a card she made a little while ago.  We have been thinking about Summertime the last couple of days but this doesn't mean we are not thinking that 3 months ahead for the next

Looking through the Core'dindation card stock the oranges, burnt sienna and golden yellows were shouting ....'use me, use me' then it came to Mandy-Jane that she had done a card previuosly using those colours.  She dug and she dug and low and behold she found the photo!

We Used
Core'dinations Card
Darice Embossing Folder - Stripes
Spellbinders Die - Leaves
Sheena Douglass Stamps - Silhouette Country Lane
Versfine Ink - Onyx Black
Only a quickie but effective.  Great for a man's card.
We hope you have been inspired.
Thanks for Popping By
