Three little girls playing dress up .........

Hi Everyone, Thanks for dropping in and having a look around.

My card is a Triple Aspect card with all sides decorated.
To start I stuck three rectangular cards together, these were made by scoring and folding three A5 sheets of Papermania Card Stock, I chose a different coloured card for each, as I wanted the colours of the background to blend with my chosen promarker colours. 

This is the front of the card

 This is the back of the card

Next I stamped any three little girls - my chosen theme being dressing up - and coloured them with promarkers using the same colours throughout, mounting each one in it's own frame (cut with the Cricut)  These are the close up pictures of the individual frames of the card

My papers are from the Flower Garden Magnolia collection.  I decorated all the separate panels of the card, front and back with these.  My girlies were then mounted and layered onto their respective backgrounds.  A papermania bow was added and three papermania buttons down each side panel. 

Swirls were added to each of the outside back panels (these were cut on the cricut) and three pearls added to each one.
A doily cut using the X-cut Lace die is the centre piece of the back of the card.  Again a pearl is added for dimension.  This was then mounted onto the centre back panel of the card.

Lastly two sentiments from LOTV were stamped and cut using Spellbinders Nestabilities.  These were mounted onto the front of the card using sticky pads.

Autumn is coming .............

Firstly I have a confession to make, it's been really hard to be indoors doing crafty bits, when the weather has been so brilliant.  Not like autumn at all really.  I have taken my colouring outside to the garden and used our trees as inspiration for this card.

The back layer is embossed Coredina'tions paper in a mustard colour.  I used a Cuttlebug flower embossing folder for this.  The rest of the papers are from Desert Blooms from First Edition.  The sentiment if from a Forever Friends embelishments pack.

Gorguss was coloured with my promarkers and the background was coloured using Dovecraft chalks in greens, greys and reds.  The spots on the mushrooms were coloured with a white gel pen.

I couldn't find a paper I wanted to use to match the floral paper, so I cut a small piece and then distressed it with dovecraft chalks, again using reds and browns.  To finish this card off I added a lovely handmade green bow.  This ribbon is fab and has crinkly edges.  

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
