Autumn Floral Basket

Hi again, this is the last day of my holidays, so I'm trying to make it last as long as possible!!
It was a public holiday today so at least it will be a short week.
 Oh and the rabbitohs won Woohoo!!

I was inspired to make this card for a few challenges.
At Addicted to Stamps & More there is this gorgeous inspiration pic.

At Less is More it's a colour theme, Autumn's bounty.

At Simon Says Stamp Monday it's a fall love challenge. I've used twinkling H2Os in persimmon, bronze and ginger peach for my autumn colours.

I'm popping a 2nd entry into Virginia's View Challenge where it's a clean and simple theme.

Stampin Up stripes embossing folder; Memory Box Grove branch, basket and flower dies; Impression Obsession leaf die; vellum; twinkling H2O's; distress inks; prismacolor pencils for light shading under the basket; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
