Autumn Hues

Even though we are spring time here (supposedly), I love the colours of autumn and enjoy crafting with them:

In case you are wondering about the supposedly, we have had frosts three mornings in a row!  That to me, is not spring weather!

This card is for the challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew which can be found here:

I don't have a large selection of Kenny K images and sometimes have to stretch a bit to get an image to fit the challenge.  However, this gorgeous bear image suits the reddish-browns of autumn.  I tried to give him a bit of a fur look with my colouring which seems to have worked okay.  I then die-cut the bear using a Spellbinders scallop oval.

I have used two papers from my stash.  The Thank You is an acrylic stamp inked with Distress Ink - vintage photo.  This paper was made up of various rectangles with autumn images on them.  I chose this leaf one to use as the backing for the sentiment.  The main paper is from the same set - although I don't know what brand they are as I had put them all into a scrapbook album to keep them clean!

I added some autumn coloured rhinestones to the sentiment square to give it a bit of bling!
