Daisy Decoupage and Butterflies

I love this daisy stamp from Imagination Crafts and for this card I've kept to a simple orange and white colour scheme.

I stamped several times and after colouring with Promarkers, cut and built up the layers.  I matted the main image onto a SB Lacey Squares die with some orange ribbon and a MS punched border behind it.  I've finished with some punched and layered butterflies embellished with gems.

Leaves are Falling

Well, there's no denying it, autumn is definitely here - warm coats and wellies are out.  It seems appropriate to use this digi image which I won in a challenge.  It's called 'Noah and his Autumn Leaves' and is from Sassy Cheryl.

The papers are all 'Neighbourwood' by Helz Cuppleditch and I've embellished with some pearls, ribbon, bow and some leaves punched from patterned pearlescent papers using Xcut embossing punches.
