Autumn Blessings

Good morning!

Today there's a new challenge at Double D Challenges 


Team Diane are hosting with the challenge....

Harvest Blessings and  Give Thanks


Here's my card


I just love the colours of Autumn and whilst we don't have Thanksgiving in the UK ... We used to celebrate Harvest Festival, when we would take the fruits of the harvest to church or school in little boxes or baskets to be donated. I'm not sure if they still do that now... Now we have food banks everywhere and all manner of food gets donated all year round.... There are even places to donate food for cats and dogs


My card celebrates the glory of the season with sponged and glossed leaves just like they look outside right now, well, perhaps not so glossy but just as pretty.
In case you're wondering, the little clock hands represent the time of year


Both Diane and Dar's team have some lovely projects up on the blog to inspire you and we hope you'll share your creations with us. 
For full details and to see what you can win ... go on over to the Double D Blog

Wishing you a lovely day and the blessings of the season

Wow! I just love this card. The Autumn colors are so crisp and I really like how you tucked the leaves behind the diagonal strip. I am so going to copy your idea, but I will give you credit of course. :) Thanks for the crafty inspiration.

Glorious colours on those leafs and loving the gloss effect. Great texture on the white card too x

Leslie Miller said...

You do autumn beautifully, Ros! Glorious color on those leaves, and the gloss makes them appear wet, just like all our leaves are right now. So clever to use the clock hands. I "got" it right away. Love!

Kathy Krug said...

This is sooo gorgeous, Love it on the diagonal and how you tucked the beautiful leaves behind ribbon. Genius to add the clock hand and the one little star.
