Autumn Flowers

Well I survived our overnight excursion. Unfortunately for the boys it was rainy and cold the whole time so they only got to do one outside activity. They still had lots of fun and made plenty of noise and mess!

For today's card I combined two challenges
Freshly made Sketches

 and Uniko Studio where the challenge is Autumn/Fall.

I probably took some liberties with both the sketch and the theme. I choose to use Autumn colours in my card as it is actually spring where I live and not autumn at all,
here is my card

and then a spring version with some hand embossing. I coloured the vases with pastel pencils and then smudged them with an ear bud.
