Shades of Autumn

Hello you lovely peeps and I hope you are well this Friday.
 I have an autumn inspired card to share with you which seems apt as it certainly looks and feels like autumn today. The leaves are finally changing colour now, although the fields are still emerald green as you can see...


We never take this view for granted and thank our lucky stars every day for the privilege of living in such beautiful surroundings. 

Anyway on with the card...


I discovered a centre stepper card (from somewhere!) and decided to use it as a change from square. I used this lovely image as I thought she could actually be sweeping leaves. The lovely papers are called Harvest Blessings and the sentiment was stamped on a scrap of tan card. She was, of course, coloured with Promarkers except the hair which was coloured with Graph' it markers that I bought back along.

I am entering these challenges

P.S. If you're wanting to have a go at vintage, I suggest getting some Tim Holtz Ideaology paper... Start with that and the rest kinda does itself, lol.

Of course, if you're like me, then you'll have said paper sitting on your desk for the better part of a year, yet you refuse to use it because it's just too pretty! lol. x
