Autumn Days and Autumn Traditions

This card was inspired by this card by Vicki Burdick. I've been wanting to use both my stamp set Autumn Days and the papers that match, Autumn Traditions for some time now. This is the result. I love the All of a Flutter butterfly and it's a dream to colour after I had clear embossed it over Soft Suede ink. The colours I used on the butterfly Ruby Red, More Mustard and Always Artichoke mixed in with gorgeous, gorgeous shimmer paint. Yummo, this stuff is fabulous. Here's hoping we have it in the new catty due out in September. The buttons are Ruby Red and are now retired. Base card is Naturals Ivory, with More Mustard underneath the dp. I'm not sure that the curly label punch was the right thing to use but it's stuck down now so I can't change it. Hope you like my card and thanks so much for visiting.
