Daring Cardmakers - Forever Autumn .....and an Award from Vikki

This week's challenge at Daring Cardmakers is 'Forever Autumn'. I love working with these colours - paper is K&Co Urban Rhapsody, flower Prima and I made the leaf by crumpling and tearing a hand cut shape, inking with Distress Inks in autumnal colours then heat embossing with copper. There's lots of stitching on this card which I ran over with a brown chalk inkpad to grunge it up a bit. This Award was given to me by the lovely Vikki - thank you so much! xx I would like to pass this on to

You always put such a lot of work into your cards Juliet and I’m never disappointed when I come to have a nosey. I love what you’ve done with the copper embossing on the leaf; it really makes it look special.
