Autumn Poinsettia, bow and buttons.

Well here we are again it is Friday....
another week is over (nearly) 

Time to share with you some thoughts and cards both new and old. 

First here is my card for today.

To make the background I used an ink pad with Orange colours and passed the pad 
over a piece of card. 

I then used an orange smoothie to ink through the stencil onto the background paper. 

I then mounted onto a deep orange paper onto a mauve card blank. 
Unfortunately the photo does not show the card blank colour very well. 

Added mauve shades of buttons to the sides of the card and added a bow. 

Ribbon from my stash of Crafty Ribbons bargain bags. 

Then final part to add a hint of sparkle to the flowers. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the


As it is Friday here is an oldie for over at Erika's
Sort of keeping with the theme of Autumn 
Made this about a year ago. 

Do pop over to visit Erika and see what others are sharing. 

Thank you for popping over to visit and I look forward to 
seeing you again very soon. 

Take care
