CYDA Challenge 4 - Autumn Doodles, DT card...

It's time for another Craft Your Days Away challenge and the theme this time has been picked by the lovely Carol Ann and it is 'Autumn Doodles'. I had loads of fun making my DT card for this challenge and used a gorgeous freebie digi image from the fabulous Mo Manning (the image was available on Mo's Facebook page last week). I have never done doodles on my cards before and was rather worried that after I'd coloured the cat and paper pieced the leaf, I would muck it up with my rubbish doodling but I think it looks ok, well I rather like it actually.

Please come and join in the fun with our latest challenge over at Craft Your Days Away. We are being sponsored this time by Whimsy Stamps and have a fabby prize up for grabs! My DT team mates have made some stunning creations so please pop by and take a peek.

Please be aware that the wonderful Whimsy Stamps site is having technical problems at the moment and the site is poorly :-( If you would like to order anything whilst it is being fixed please contact the lovely owner directly.. deniselynnstamps@gmail.com.

So here's my card, lots of red and rust colours here...

I paper pieced the leaf in the image and then added another on top to add some dimension.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Supplies:
Image - Fall by Mo Manning, freebie download from Mo's Facebook page coloured with Promarkers
Patterned papers - Nutmeg by Cosmo Cricket, I think these suit the CYDA theme perfectly
Kraft paper - Craftwork Cards (don't think they sell this any more)
Raffia - Papermania
Sentiment - generated on PC
Tools - Woodware leaf punch, circle & scallop circle Nesties
