I have used a digi stamp called 'Parker the Puppy' from Scrapping Memories, for my card. The first thing I did was to colour him in. That then helped me choose the colours for the rest of the card - which turned out very autumnal! So I coloured him in using a combination of: Saffron, Apricot, Ginger and Spice for the lighter, more orangey areas. And the darker areas are made up of Cocoa, Teracotta, Henna and Walnut. For the bone I used Ivory and Eggnogg.
I cut the image out with a Spellbinders circle and inked with Tea Dye DI whilst still in the die. I also edged it with the same ink once I had taken it out.
Because the overall effect was an orangey brown colour, I decided to go with an orange base card (A4 folded in half - from my stash). The scalloped circle was cut from C&C Textured cardstock (from the pastel set) - whilst I used the largest Spellbinder Splendid Circle die with a piece of paper from my scrap box (don't know where it was from). I cut this in half and attached it to the back of the scalloped circle.
The autumn leaf card is also from my scrap box - I know that this was leftover from a Hunkydory kit. The colours really complement the orangey, brown autumnal feel the card has. A piece of white card was edged with Triple Scallop Edgeability, and embossed with That Special Touch Large Polka Dot mask. I inked the edges with Tea Dye DI. The ribbon, glittery flowers and fabric flowers are all from my stash. As a finishing touch, I added Glossy Accents to the nose!
