Autumn Nuts

Hello everyone well I promised the girls at the sugar nellie forum that I would tackle the new challenge at the Sugar Bowl and here it is.In fact I don't think it was as difficult as I thought it was going to be.
The stamp is from Sugar nellie in the Home grown section,Lime green paper is from my stash all of the other papers are from basic greys origins pad,Flowers are made from shapeabilities,Leaves are a martha Stewart punch,Pearls are dark brown from Wild Orchid Crafts.I have coloured with promarkers and distressed with Tea Dye distress ink.Once I had finished I wondered what I was stressing about silly me lol.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Sugar Bowl-Tiets sketch and Autumn
Bunny Zoes-Autumn Love
Craftilicious-Anything goes
Pear tree-Autumn
Stamping vacation-Lots of paper
Totally papercrafts-Autumn
Basic Grey-Autumn/Harvest time
Thankyou for visiting me

Great - glad you did it & I do love these papers with your squirrel. The green on the conker skin really draws the attention so well.

Elaine said...

Oh my goodness Lorraine, this is fab.
I thought it looked quite a difficult sketch but when I actually started to make a card I was surprised how easily it all came together.
You've done a fabulous job with this sketch, and you've coloured this squirrel perfectly.
Great choice of papers and the flowers are the perfect embellie.

Love Elaine xx

Hi Lorraine
No wonder you can't find anything!! It was Clip art!!! Soooo Sorry. I couldn't find it been looking since last night. But found this site.
Type in Santa Claus and Illustrations one or two of these might catch your eye.
Thank you for visiting me, very much appreciated.
