Basic Grey - Autumn Colour - Inspiration Photograph.

Hi Everyone
It's time for our new challenge here Basic Grey but first I must thank everyone who joined in our Anything Goes Challenge over the last fortnight.  We had a super lot of entries and the team really enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing the fab variety of creations with this theme.  Don't forget to check back later to see who is the lucky winner of our Simon Says Stamp prize.

Now on to this week's challenge and we have a wonderful Photo Inspiration below for you with a theme of ...

Autumn Colours

Isn't that just a magical picture!  I know we'll see some gorgeous entries using this as inspiration.

just remember to use a Basic Grey product and let us know in your post what that is.  Oh, and don't forget that we are also now limiting the number of entries that you can make to three. 

As always, our wonderful sponsor, Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore

(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)

The beauty of autumn is the benefit of being able to use up my enormous stash of Basic Grey's Indian Summper. For some reason of buying 1 large (12"x12") pack and 2 smaller 6"x6" packs escapes me!!!
I decided to make a card incorporating a bookmark. I  use the  All Seasons Tree - the positive on the card and the negative on the booknark. I added a small charm attached to the ribbon of the bookmark.

Materials and Tools
Papers: Cream Bazzill - Butter Cream
DP's:  Basic Grey -  Indian Summer
Dies:   Simon's Exclusive All Seasons Tree,  Spellbinders - circles,  MFT Fresh cut Grass
Punches: Martha Stewart Round the Page Eyelet Lace,
Miscellaneous: Butteflies - small padded - (round in my stash!), multi-coloured ribbon a!  
Tools:   Martha Stewart Scoring Board,  Tonic Studio Guillotine/Paper TrimmerPro Arts Glue Glider,  Fiskars - Stamp Press,  

I hope you have a brilliant weekend!!!Ayt

What a stunning autumn photo, and I love your little card wallet... so clever to use the positive and the negative of the tree, and that's a bookmark that would grace any book!
