The background image for this card is another free one from the Graphics Fairy; the edges are covered with skeleton leaves to add to the autumnal feel.
"A card for Autumn with leaves and squirrels"

The leaves on the border are from a stamp that came free with "Craft Stamper" magazine.

"Embossed leaves"

The embossing uses a "verdigris" embossing powder which is a mixture of green and copper. I love the effect it gives.

Look closely and you'll see the squirrels' tails are feathers from our Road Island Red hens. 


  1. Autumn is my favourite time of year and this card captures it perfectly! x

  2. I love how youve used the feathers as the squirrels tails, so creative. Though I gather these were fallen feathers or were you chasing chickie around the pen shouting "Its all in the name of art little chicken....and your contribution will be online for the world to see"?? Heehee. Love this Maddy, so creative and unique. Lee xx

  3. What a fabulous autumn card, love the way you used the feathers! Thanks for joining us in celebrating Autumn at Phindy's Place this week, hope you'll join us again.
    Don't forget, this week it is Anything Goes as long as you use a Phindy image:)

  4. Beautifully done!
