Autumn Colours....

Autumn is a Second Spring
Today's card is inspired by the theme of Autumn, 
its leaves and Autumn Splendour.
I started by spraying several Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays onto card.
I used the Poppy Stamps Maple Leaf Border Die 
to cut out the four Maple Leaves out of white card stock 
and popped the sprayed background underneath.
I used wet glue as I didn't think the mica in the background 
would stick successfully with my normal tape glue.
However, once the sprays where wet they made a mess. 
Another lesson learned and had to start again!
The edge of the card has been embossed with gold EP.
I stamped the sentiment with a Clearly Besotted stamp,
with A Big and Juicy ink stamp pad of autumnal colours which gave a lovely effect.
The Mica sprays gave a gorgeous selection of Autumnal coloured leaves.
I do so love them!
I will be entering the card into the following challenges...
