Autumnal colours

Since I saw it last Sunday, I've been meaning to do something for Nikki's challenge on DewDrop Craftz - 'As we are now watching the autumn leaves falling and the colours of nature changing.. with the weather turning from warm(ish) to so chilly some days, you wonder why you got out of bed.. this weeks challenge is 'Autumnal colours'. I would love to see all your projects using colours from autumn.. '

Having cuttlebug embossed the background, I swiped it with chestnut roan chalk ink. TheThe big leaf in the middle is one made out of a close-weave netting (doesn't show up too well) - I got some of them a long time ago and have rarely used them - and the two acorns (the one on the right is more golden than it looks) are sizzlit die cuts:

Challenge 30 on Lots to do this week is to make something involving embossing, so I'm doubling up with this.

In fact, I'm trebling up because the challenge on Cute Card Thursday is also to make an autumnal themed card.

These were all good challenges - got me using something that has been in the box for a long while!
