A walk in the autumn woods ....

Hi everybody

Well - it really does seem like autumn with the cold evenings - cannot believe it - I thought we were going to have an Indian Summer.  Haha!

My image is from Stampavie.  I have coloured with Copics, and love the combination of the orangey and pinky/mauvey tones of the paper with the mauve for the coat.  I have used papers from the Eseence of Nature CD from Glenda Waterworth - three different ones for the various elements.  The flower has been made with some of the petals from the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals, rubbed over witth Wild Honey distress ink.  I have used the smaller petals to make a rose in the middle to which I have also added a small gold pearl.  Across the middle is a band of the base card, which is tan, and this has been punched with a martha Stewart edge punch of leaves, but it is not terribly visible.  I have wrapped some mauve grosgrain ribbon around the centre band as well.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
