Autumn - Sweet Stampin' DT

Good morning all,

It's Autumn over at Sweet Stampin' this week!

I'd finally managed to get my hands on a Prima doll recently, and was itching to use it. I also really wanted to use a lovely Paris background that I've had in my stash for ages. Now technically, neither of those really scream "autumn", but seeing as how the Paris stamp had trees, I had the idea of colouring them in autumn colours, and hey presto!

This was the result:

As the image itself is so busy, I decided the rest of the card should be quite CAS, so some simple matting and layering and a big silky red bow with only one DP.
The card looks a little brighter than it does in real life, and there seems to be almost no colour on the buildings! One of these days I'll find the perfect way to take these pictures, lol.

Now I'm sure you'll all want to visit the rest of the Sweeties, and then come join in yourselves, as there's a £10 Bunny Zoe voucher to be won!

Have a great weekend, and if you happen to be going to the Harrogate fair on Sunday, keep your eyes peeled for a pink and black plaid hat (my daughter!) and come say howdy!

In the meantime I think I shall play along at the Allsorts challenge blog, where they also have an autumn theme!
