An autumn colors birthday card

Winner at Lindy's Gang
for October challenge
The leaves are turning brown and gold, and the smell of the rain is sensational... autumns is here...
Today it's my turn on the Altair Art blog, and I've made an autumn inspired birthday card, using the beautiful papers by Altair Art, not only for the layering, but also for the floral arrangement that is the focal point of my card.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Desktop calendar for Altair Art

Happy Friday!
Today it's my turn on Altair Art blog, and I'm sharing a desktop calendar I've made as a gift to a good friend of mine.
The sizes are 5.5"x7.5".

I've made this calendar from scratch, start to end.
The base was made from chipboards covered with efalin paper (which is perfect for binding!), and then I adhered Altair Art papers to both panels for the background.

I've made 6 pages from cardstock covered both sides with beautiful Altair Art papers, so each page holds two months.

After adhering the months pages (the file was made by the talented Moran Hamilton, and I backed the papers with cardstock), I decorated each side with lace, die cuts and beautiful florals which I fussy cut from the Altair Art papers. 
I added some enamel dots to extra finishing.

I used the following Altair Art papers:

Here are photos of some of the pages, along with close-ups on some of the detais:

A golden wedding card - Altair Art

The current challenge at Altair Art blog is 'Sparkle and Shine', and I've made a golden wedding card for it, with a matching envelope.
You can see the challenge details HERE:
I used the 6x6 pad collection 'Beautiful Moments'. This collection is so romantic and dedicated to a wedding theme.
My base was a golden shimmer cardstock, and I've used it also for the bride&groom die cut.
The sentiment was heat embossed with Lindy's Gang ep 'King Midas Gold'.
Inside the card, there's a pocket for a giftcard/money, and a place to write some blessings.
Here are close-ups on the photos:

Autumn - CSI case file no. 263

 A new month, with a new case file at CSI: case file no. 263, with an autumn atmosphere:

This month, CSI teamed with Page Maps, so each of the CSI DT got a sketch to work with.
This is the sketch I got:
I kept very true to it.
I really loved the earthly colors of the case file. 
The clues that I've used were: textured paper, woodgrain paper, flowers, leaves, branches, fruit (the acorn), fall themed elements, a jar, twine, frames, an animal, something woven (the burlap heart).
In my journaling I documented an early autumn walk we've had 4 years ago, and it's in a circular frame.
Here're some close-ups on the details:
