Stamp Something ,,,,,Fall/Autumnal Colours

Wow !!! we had loads of fabulous entreis to our September Digi Challenge :-)

This week we have another fab theme


We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi of Simon Says Stamp so a lovely shopping spree on offer !! :-)

We are also welcoming 3 new DT members ,, Shannon makes her debut today and Ellie and Pattie join us next week :-) Welcome aboard girls :-)

For my card I followed Joey's fab sketch on the Penny Black Challenge :-)

To be honest ,,, this looked better in my head lol :-) ,,, I am not overly fond of this effort but I just don't have the time at the mo' to make another one !! It will have to do !! :-)
I used the lovely Penny Black Fantasy Tree stamp ,,, such a gorgeous stamp :-) I stamped it with Hero Arts Latte chalk ink and inked the edges with vintage photo and rusty hinge distresss inks. the papers are Basic Grey Indian Summer, these were a RAK from a lovely blog buddy :-) xx I distressed all the edges with a Tim Hiltz tool and inked them too ,,, then smothered platinum stickles everywhere. I found a lovely leaf and brown rose in my drawer. The ribbon is very fine organza and the little acorn is a button :-)
