Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #3 and a Free Download!

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.  I'm sorry I'm behind visiting blogs. 

I have a design today for Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge #3 using this month's free digital download for the background.  

If you would like the two beautiful FREE downloads just head over to CB's Colour Challenge Blog to 'pick them up'.  We would love it if you joined us in the challenge as well. 

I used both Autumn Base and Autumn Overcoat for this design.  It was quick to make this card, the flowers took the most time which I coloured with Distress Inks (Walnut and Rusty Hinge).  I also added a little Rusty Hinge DI to the bottom background.   The Fairy was stamped with Coffee Archival Ink and is from the  October Fairy set.

The die cuts are Crealie CL CF25 and CL CS 02.

And here is the gorgeous Colour Challenge Inspiration design (by Lesley):

Thanks for your visit and have a great day,

Herrlich, liebe Shirley...
mir gefallen die herbstlichen warmen Farben, und die Elfe auf dem Pilz.
Sehr mystisch und anmutig.
Eine schöne Karte.

Die Welt wird wieder so bunt, und wenn dann die Sonne scheint, leuchtet alles, dass mir das Herz aufgeht.
Ich liebe den Herbst inzwischen mehr als den Sommer, der immer schnell zu heiß, zu extrem wird.

Umarmung und Grüße von Sophie xx

This is lovely Shirley and the background papers work really well with the fairy image, and the extra die cut flowers and swirls finish it beautifully. x
