Amazing Autumn

I do love this time of year. I don't know if it's because I was born in the autumn but there's something about the crisp blue autumn skies and the weather starting to turn, that is somehow invigorating. And the colours of autumn are just beautiful....
 
So I have thoroughly enjoyed making my project for this week's Autumn theme at One Stitch at a Time:
 
 
I was working with a beautiful set of Butterflies digi stamps by Sentimental Susan and I coloured them with my Promarkers in autumnal colours before carefully cutting them out:
 
 
I used a DL card and some absolutely gorgeous paper from Bo Bunny's new Autumn Song collection and added some autumn foliage cut with a Memory Box die that I bought recently. I printed a sentiment on my computer and cut it out using a decorative oval die, inking the edges before attaching.
 
 
To finish I added my coloured butterflies, attaching some with foam pads for a touch of dimension.
 
As ever, you don't need to use a Stitchy Bear product to enter the challenge (though obviously we'd love to see your Stitchy Bear creations :D) but if you do you'll be entered into the random draw to win our main prize this week. Non-Stitchy Bear entries will have a chance to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear store.
 
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
