It's Autumn

Hi all this is a card I managed to finish last night and is based on the Autumn theme. I have managed to tie it in to five challenges, I think, and will list them below. I have coloured the image with pro markers and distressed with copper Brilliance ink and some green Versamark, I added some cut out leaves in the top corners and some green liquid pearls. The sentiment was all in one but I decided to cut it into three and colour it in three of the same colours used in the image. Finally I added a couple of mini fir cones which I found in a field while walking the dog and a little of the spruce and must say the smell is delicious it really does smell of Autumn. I hope you like it and thanks for looking, I really appreciate your comments so please let me know what you think. The challenges that I am entering this for are as follows:

How happy does this girlie look in her wellies walking through the autumn leaves!!

Great card, I love the way you have emphasised her by edging the image with copper and green. The cones, leaves and sentiments all add to a real autumnal effect.

Thanks for joining us at BTC&G

Luv Rach x
