Fall into Autumn




































Jenny's challenge this week over at the "Wee Memories" Blog is "Fall into Autumn", I don't have any leaf stamps but already had this wheat grass image in my scraps basket waiting to be used.  The sky has been distressed with various coloured inks and has a very Autumnal feel.  I cut it into a circle and added seed beads to the wheat heads to give a little sparkle.  The background is distressed with Spiced Marmalade and then stamped with Hero Arts cling Dots stamp.  I have added some blue perfect pearls to the dragonfly wings.
This card is also for the "All distressed" challenge over at the Sir Stampalot blog, they have a monthly challenge and always have awesome prizes!
Its also eligible for the Hero Arts challenge.

Hope you are all having a good week, the sun is shining today and I need to get in the garden!

The beads added to the Hero grass stamp gives a fabulous finish, an idea I just might have to steal if I may ?
