Autumn Maggie

I was looking through some of my older stamps today, and decided I wanted to make a card using 'Maggie in Dotty Scarf' from Sugar Nellie...

I decided to go to The Sugar Bowl and check out the current challenge, it's a sketch by Tiets this week with lots of layers :)
There is an added theme of Autumn too if we want to use it.

Obviously Autumn is a popular theme at this time of year, so I checked out what other challenges had the same theme...

Crafty Sentiments current challenge has the theme 'Autumn Colours'

Charisma Cardz are asking us to use Autumn Colours this week too,

as are Lili of the Valley, i'll leave a link in their comments but not with mr linky as I haven't used a LOTV image.

Crafty Calendar Challenge are celebrating their first birthday and have set this months theme of 'Autumn Birthdays'
It's my first time entering a challenge with them as I have only just found their blog.

Stamp Something have asked us to use punches this week, I have used my small oak leaf punch by woodware

Secret Crafter want us to do some distressing,

and last but certainly not least, Totally Gorjuss want us to make a Non-Square card this week.

so that's 8 challenges with one card, not bad eh?
