Warm Autumn Thoughts!

Yippee I hear you all say across the nations......Friday is finally here!

Time for relaxation and lots of warm, autumn thoughts for friends and family. Today is my sister's Birthday. So I have already given her this card but today I will send her warm thoughts via blog land!

My card today was inspired by Angeline's card for the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. I loved her one layer take on the sketch and decided to give it a go.

I had a go at blending the inks to show the different colours that leaves go as Autumn moves on. I tried to do the same with the sentiment. I masked off the inked area with post-its and then sponged yellow ink to give the card a warmer feel. I had a lot of inky fun doing this and loved adding the red Paper Smooches dots under the sentiment as, without these, it just seemed too bare.

I am also going to enter this into the 'one layer card with foliage' challenge over on Less is More and the 'Fall' challenge on Scrapalicious USA

Have a good weekend and Happy Birthday Tina x
