Shades of Autumn

Hi crafters,
Happy Halloween!! I love this time of year - I am a Halloween baby and I'm celebrating a special Birthday (50!!!!) this year!  I've just come back from visiting my eldest in University and I'm off to visit my youngest who's just started at Uni, next weekend - the best presents I could wish for!
I also love this time of year for the Autumn colours - absolutely gorgeous!  Love the leaves on this building - stunning!

 It's also Tuesday which means a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  This week's theme has been chosen by our lovely Elaine and she would like to see 'Shades of Autumn' on your creations. - nice and easy! 

There are 2 fab prizes up for grabs this week and our first generous sponsor is Petal Lu and they are offering one lucky winner a 30% discount voucher to use in their online store.  Their flowers are so beautiful so why not pop over to their store and check them out.

The second prize up for grabs is a 6 pack of promarkers so why not join in with this fab challenge and be in with a chance of winning these great prizes!  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme. 
 I made a 'Thank you' card using my new stamp called 'Daisy Squidgy' from  Stamping Bella which I coloured with my promarkers.  I used a great new fold that we used at our last workshop and I'll definitely be using this fold again! 
I made my own flowers to match the one in the image by using various punches and I punched some leaves out of white card and used my green promarkers so they matched the leaves in the image.
Here is another view showing the fold I've used on my card this week.
Thanks for dropping by and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see all your gorgeous creations.
Hugs, Karen xx
