More Autumn Colors for Penny Black and More

Time for our midmonth reminder at Penny Black and More. Our theme this month is Warm Autumn Colors, very fitting for this time of the year. Still some time to join us and we have several wonderful prizes to give away. 

I used a cute stamp from the set "Critter Party". This set is available in my Etsy Stamp Shop, along with the sentiment set I used here. There are lots of other cute little sentiments included in that set, and some butterflies too :-)

Image has been colored using copic markers on xpress it blending card. The red heart button on the bottom is actually a tangerine shade, just a bit darker than the orange card stock. Not sure why it shows up as red in the photo. 

Here is a closeup. 

Products used:
Button Die set (Whimsy Stamps), MS butterfly punch
SU card stock, DCWV and Basic Grey Designer Papers
xpress it blending card for image
sheer ribbon,  hemp twine, glitter
distressing tool

I am also playing along here:
A Gem of a Challenge - spots and /or stripes
My Time to Craft -autumnal colours
Alphabet Challenge -  R is for Ribbon 
Crafting-With-Friends -Always Anything Goes 
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes

I also wanted to share this card again, that I made and posted yesterday, but late in the day :-)
You can find all the details about it by clicking here - Inspired by Heather - if you are interested :-)
 
 
 Happy stamping!!
