Simon Says: Autumn Is In The Air


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week the challenge is

 Autumn Is In The Air

Autumn well known for the cooling temperatures and the changing of the scenery. The trees  are transformed from glossy shades of green to gorgeous shades of  red, brown, orange and gold. It is also a time to celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving, there are so many options you can choose from!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I made a card using the lovely colours or Autumn

Autumn is a time for jumping in puddles and stomping on piles of crunchy leaves, you are never too old to do that you know! 
 I made this using Simon's Real Leaves Stamp And Die Set, the grainy texture on the leaves in this set make it perfect for autumn projects I made my own shimmer spritzer using Vintage Photo Distress Ink  and Gold Perfect Pearls to create a lovely subtle glimmer when sprayed over the White Paste Embossed Woodgrain Stencil background.

The shimmer shows a little better from this angle
