Autumn WOJ meets Crafty Creations

It has been such a busy day today....must be the run-up to my granddaughters Baptism on Sunday. We've been out looking at Christening cakes today to get ideas for how I can decorate the one for Amelia. It's just taken all day to do that.

Anyway, onto today's card. I thought I'd join in the WOJ Challenge this week for the first time with my very first WOJ card. The theme is Autumn colours and I really enjoyed colouring Willow with these colours. I've used the 'Willow with Hot Chocolate' stamp and it seemed so appropriate to add her onto the 'Fall Grass' background stamp.

It's also an Autumn Theme over at Cute Card Thursday so I'd like to enter this into that challenge too.

Finally, for the Hat Trick, I'm also entering this on into the Crafty Creations challenge (formerly SBS18) which this week is all about 'Ribbons and Buttons and Flowers...Oh My!'

I've also decorate the inside of the card - it is just ready for some white paper with the sentiment to be added into the middle of the tweed paper on the right.

Items used:
Papers: Making Memories 'Lauren' Multi pack 'Tweed', and DCWV Once Upon A Time stack
Orange Card.
Ribbons, 3 bows added together from stash, green stitched one is Papermania
Button: Papermania
Flowers: Mix of Prima, Papermania and Xcut punched
Watercolour Pencils (first time I've tried using watercolour paper too, I'm not sure if I like this media or not).

Well, I've managed to upload this post and now my daughter is throwing me off my PC - goodness knows what time I'll manage to get back on it tonight.
