CR84FN Challenge # 39

Hi All!
Do you ever design a card in your head and it looks perfect but when you actually get down to making it, some how it just isn`t the same? That`s exactly what happened with this card for this fortnights cr84fn challenge. I think it`s because I made the flowers too big and, because I haven`t had time to change them, the whole design has been altered to fit.Still I`m relatively pleased with the result.
I so love this time of the year and it really has to be because of the gorgeous earthy colours we get.So with the inspiration for this fortnight being as they are I simply had to join in.
Brown textured card from Papermill shop (before it closed) made into 15cm square card.
A strip of corrugated kraft card overhanging slightly with gardeners string wrapped around.
The flowers are made from tissue paper cut with a scallop nestie and scrunched.
The sentiment is from Papertrey Autumn Abundance set cut out with a tag punch.

That`s it from me for now, thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
