SFTW and Penny Black at Allsorts

This is a rare occasion cause Stampin for the Weekend has a new challenge every other Friday and Penny Black at Allsorts has a new challenge the first of each month. That happens to be today and they both have the theme Colours of Autumn and I'm on the DT for both challenges so I simply haven't done two separate contributions, I made one - so shoot me...

Actually, since I live far up in the north of absolutely nowhere you probably can't find me anyway ;)

So, I used this marvellous Penny Black stamp called First day of Christmas, made a background of it, distressed the paper with crushed olive and vintage photo and glued some pearls all over.

Have a lovely weekend!

Other challenges:

Craftalicious - autumn

Stamptacular - season's change

Simon Says - autumn

This is wonderful Helene!

It must have taken you ages to glue all the pearls, someone will be very happy to receive it.
