Autumn inspiration

Spring has sprung in my neck of the woods, but the chilly weather would suggest otherwise. Given the unseasonal weather, I was inspired by three Autumn-related Challenges this week:


Instead of leaves, I have gone with Uniko Studio’s pretty butterflies fluttering and twirling in the breeze. I see it as Autumn, with the optional twist of Spring! 😉 This card was made specifically for a wonderful teacher taking long service leave. It so happens that these are ‘her colours’. Whilst not in her nature, I certainly hope she takes the time to relax! She will be sorely missed next term.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:
