AUTUMN BEAUTY

Hi all, today I have a card to share with you and to enter a few challenges, Autumn and Spring are my two favourite seasons so it was such a joy to be able to create this card using Autumnal colours.
I have used an image from the CHING-CHOU KUIK range of digi stamps she is called Sunshine.  I have coloured her with a combo of Graph it Markers, Copics and for her hair I have used Spectrum Noir.  The papers are a mixture of LOTV, SU and another one that was in my stash, I mounted the image onto orange and black card I used a border punch on the black card strip, I also used my SU stamp and punch for the sentiment, I have added a die cut banner one in orange and one in the red paper then off set them for a shadow effect, I did the same for the sentiment, I added some white mesh ribbon topped with gold diamanté mesh ribbon finally I added some flowers.

A closer view of the image 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend I hope to visit you a little later until then take care.
