Two Challenges

 Don't you just love 'two for the price of one' and this is happening here with one card for two current challenges.  One is the Snippets Playground and the other is Allsorts..  As usual anything goes for the Snippets challenge as long as snippets have been used and Allsorts theme is autumn leaves.

For this card I searched my 'inky play' snippets collection and found enough of a piece which had been coloured using a selection of Oxide inks in autumn colours so some distressed leaves were cut from this piece (those are my Snippets).  I then had to cut into a new piece of cream card to make a layer to fit the card blank and used a leafy cut out border die, placing another inky piece of card behind the aperture.  This was left over from a shaving foam playtime so another Snippet.  The Autumn leaves are covered for the Allsorts challenge with the die cuts and the colours chosen.  The leaves have been edged with some gilding wax but that doesn't really show up in the picture.

If you want proof of 'great  minds thinking alike' it is worth popping along to this blog where the talented Sarn has used the self same autumn leaf dies with some clever background work.
