Glitter Alert!

Good morning, well don't the days just fly by it's Monday again...  and time for the last  challenge for the
 Autumn Supplies
 at  Make My Monday which is
 Buttons and Ribbons
Sentiment: Creative expressions: Autumn leaves 3
Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder; Birds and wreath set  
Spellbinders Nestabilities: petite Ovals large
Tim Holtz Distress inks; Frayed Burlap, Rusty Hinge, Aged Mahogany,Tea Die.
Versafine: Vintage Sepia  
Stickles: Copper
Martha Stewart: Hydrangea punch
Deco Art: Glamour Dust
Ribbon, buttons and leaves from stash.


Cut out embossed leaves with the Spellbinders oval underneath.

The base card is a light cream but on the photographs it appears white..ish. I've no idea where I got the two leaves. I came across them when I was searching for some wooden buttons which I didn't use in the end.. they were too big.

Teeny, tiny buttons. I coloured some thin card with DI's before punching out the flowers.

       The second lovely leaf
Sorry this is a quick post without much description of how I made this card,  I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have but I'm sure you'll be able to tell from the photographs and besides you're all sooo clever  it wont be a problem for you :o) 
Don't forget to pop across to MMM  to take a look at the DT inspiration. .. It seems the vellum  challenge last week was a vellum too far :o)   I do hope you manage to join in this week.
I'm off to get ready to go Christmas shopping in Liverpool with my gorgeous daughter. See you later.
 take care
xx Suzi B xx

This is gorgeous Sue. I love the way you've cut around the leaves to tuck the oval underneath and the sepia tones are lovely. Just the right amount of sparkle too!

Enjoy your shopping but most of all the time with your DD.

This is just gorgeous Suzi. Love that embossed pattern (must investigate!) and the simple embellishing is so beautiful. Love the touch of glamour dust too which I use quite a bit (it does tend to get everywhere!)
Hope you had a lovely day and a successful trip shopping wise.
Hugs, Fliss xx

That is one very special card Suzi. Love the way you have coloured the embossing and all the little elements as it has all come together seamlessly that way. Hugs, Buttons x
