Sentimental Sundays - Use Kraft card

Yey its the weekend (although not for long!)

Yesterday I went to the annual Scarecrow festival in Bellbroughton.  We had a wonderful time, but it reminded me that Autumn is well and truly upon us!

This change in season inspired my card for this weeks challenge, use kraft card.

we are kindly sponsored by Oak Pond images, and somewhere on your card you must have used kraft card (and of course a sentiment!)  now those who are observant may notice that the sentiment is the same as my card posted Friday - however i just love it and its so sweet (and appropriate) that i had to use it again...

The backing papers are from a serif digi kit called thanks giving and mats are plain black cardstock.  The image was coloured with promarkers (Starfish, amber, pumpkin, spice, cocoa, pear green, marsh green, tan, sandstone).  the flowers are made with Kraft card, die cut with Tim Holtz tattered florals die and inked on the edges.  I then wet them with water spray and shaped, sentiment was again computer generated.

I hope you like it!
