Autumn or Harvest with the HM&F Monday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog, this is one of two posts for today, do hope you will hop back and check out the next one please :)

Today sees the next fabulous challenge at the 

The theme today is 

Autumn or Harvest

our fabulous sponsor

One winner will get a $25 gift certificate from House-Mouse Designs

I thought I might struggle with this theme but was quite pleased with what I finally created for my inspirational piece.  I did for the first time use my little sewing machine, and love how it makes the card look, hope you do too.

So here is my creation, but do not forget to hop on over to the main challenge site to see the rest of the gorgeous eye candy to inspire you.
I made a Missing You Easel Card
The base layer is a pearlescent cappuccino paper, with those gorgeous papers Kanban papers from Grimsby Crafts, mine came from a pad, but these are now available in the Grimsby Crafts store as individual sheets.  The flowers and little wooden leaves are from Grimsby Crafts too, the bling is from the Hobby House.

Here is a close up of the return with the leaves from the unmounted stamp set called Tumble available here
The single mouse is Maxwell Stumped available here 

Here is a close up the stitching, so thrilled it is actually straight :)

and lastly but oh so more importantly the main image on the front of the card
again from the unmounted stamp set called Tumble available here and coloured in copics using the YR's  in the main.

I so love these little guys. I have these stamps but have never used them yet. I have always been scared to colour them thinking that I can't colour fur correctly. Lol. You have seemed to master the effect rather amazingly I might add. Lol. Such a beautiful card and so happy that you shared it with us over at Clearly iStamp.
