Grungy Monday & Sunday Stampers

Morning, all!  I didn't think I'd get time to do an entry for Grungy Monday this week - my brother and I have been finalising the details for Mum's funeral which is this coming Friday..... but I found time this morning for a little "light relief"!

It's my first go at the returning Grungy Monday - Linda wants us to make a card in 10 minutes with at least one Tim Holtz product.... no problem there, just which ones to pick...!! Click the link on Tim to his website and all his fabby products/blog for ideas.
Also, Hels Sunday Stamper theme today is Autumn or the colours of Autumn, so I combined the two.


I don't usually plan my cards to this extent so that was a new challenge in itself!  I used distress inks wild honey, rusty hinge and the fab new ripe persimmon on the card for the layer and the tattered leaves.  The leaf border is Dylusions, everything else is by Tim so I have met that challenge. (text, tattered leaves die)
The timer went just I was getting the layer fixed to the base card... phew!! 10 minutes isn't long....
Thanks for looking.
(Just loaded some photos from Kew yesterday - take a look for some more autumn colour, for once I'm rather happy with the results!)
