Tiddly Inks challenge 19- say goodbye to summer!!

Hello peeps!!
This is my second post for today as I have actually managed to get my card done for the Tiddly Inks challenge, say goodbye to summer.
I had a little idea for it after bringing home a page from my bff's magazine throwing out pile yesterday but didn't have chance to start it until tonight when Mo had gone to bed and I am very impressed with myself for getting it finished!!!!! lol!!!!!
I had already coloured up my gorgeous gossmere with some autumny colours so all I needed to do was cut her out a little, she actually lost a bit of her fringey dangly bits due to scissors cutting them but I know Christy will fully undersand this small slip, hair can be quite tricky to trim....... lol!! and hugs for Christy!!!!!!!!
I made my little framey box card and I just had to use my awesome funky hand funky seasons cd, it has this gorgeous autumn sentiment paper on it. I printed out in the delicious orangey colour ( there are 2 more colour schemes to choose from too!!!!)
I stamped around the edges of my frame with a little leaf stamp and made myself a little shrinky button ( the shrinky button is all down to the lovely Chris who showed us how to do it at the demo on saturday!! I have made 6 since!!!lol!!!)
Then a little orangey chalking ad hey presto!!!
You would laugh at my big sis sam if you were here tonight, she has no internet at home and hasn't had any for 3 weeks now!! she has another week to go until she gets it back so I have introduced her to the world of scheduled posting!!!!!

Leaf stamp-Inkadinkado- halloween/harvest assortment.
