Fitztown Fall Colours

Over at Fitztown the current challenge is Fall Colors. Here in Australia we are in Spring so talking about Fall seems a little bit strange, but I will admit I love the combinations of the rich reds, burnt oranges, mustard yellows and any tone of brown which just says Autumn no matter where you are.

 I was also inspired by a recent article in Quick Card Magazine for this layout (the one with the Christmas Tiddly Inks Stamps as a free gift)

House of Borowski, Fitztown Floral 6, cuttlebug,kaisercraft, kasazz,papertreyink

Card Tip:

I have fussy cut my rose images,quite often they recommend you go around the edge with a black marker so the white of the paper doesn't show, in this instance I went around with a copic marker to match the colours used and found this to be better, no fear of accidental black lines on your image and your edges are still softened.

Card Ingredients:

Card Stock: Cream card stock for 5.5" square card base, all other colours are from the DCWR neutrals card stock pack.
