Bird On Dogwood Branch

It's such a beautiful cold but bright Autumn day,here on the Wirral, and with this gorgeous stamp "bird on dogwood branch " by Tina Wenke for Stampavie, arriving on the door step , what a great excuse to make an Autumn card. All I have made lately is Christmas cards, sold some yesterday,so this stamp I ordered from Ebay has got me out of the Christmas mode. I saw it on Kelly's blog and just had to have it ! bet you see lots of cards using it from me.
The papers are My minds eye ,Darling Deer ,6x6 pad.I've used various flower and leaf punches by woodware for my flower and inked all the edges in brown. The flower centre is from Joanna Sheen. The leaf ribbon and metal corner old stash.

Hope you can enjoy a lovely Autumn day too. Happy crafting.janex
