Autumn Bringer

Wow! I keep hearing about lost posts and now it has happened to me! Well on to the exciting stuff! Today is my debut on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog DT! And this weeks theme is based on this photo inspiration:

Just use this photo as inspiration to make a card or project and don't forget to stamp! This is for the STAMPtacular Sunday challenge after all!  
This is my contribution! 

I used "Spring Bringer" by Sylvia Zet and colored her with Copics. I figured with Autumnal colors she could be Spring Bringer's twin- Autumn Bringer ;) I used some Liquid Pearls in her hair and as the center of many of the flowers to add some sparkle and dimension. The leaves were cut out using my Silhouette and I used distress inks to color them and curled them for extra dimension. The papers are from several years back when I thought I was going to start scrapbooking. Well, I just got around to using them! I still really like them, especially the plaid paper. It's too bad I covered it up so much :)  
The sentiment is stamped with Wild Honey and distressed around the edge with vintage photo.

Here's an attempt at an artistic view photo!

That's my card! I don't know why, but I worked myself up and stressed myself out for my first card that it was so much harder to create this card than all the others! Especially since I got sneak peaks of what my teamies came up with! I had to force myself to start and just go with whatever happened. (Next Sundays card I had a lot more fun with!) 
So, please stop by the Stamptacular blog and see the beautiful cards my teamies created (there are some really gorgeous ones) and join in on the challenge!
