CAS one of my favourite styles

Good day everyone,
Hope you're having a good week so far.  It's cool and crisp with bright sunny skies in my little corner of the world. I hope the sun shines for you today too.
My daughter is in NYC and she was so excited about the trip. She lived there at one time furthering her dance training so it's a very special place for her.   With all the devastation recently I was anxious but her travel arrangements went smoothly.  She was meeting a friend for lunch, armed with a very long shopping list , so like her mother, except none of her purchases will include craft supplies :)   Anyway, enough of my chatter....

Today's card is for the new challenge that begins today at the
 Belli Challenge and the theme is Harvest/fruit

I love this Mo Manning digi.  It's called Winter Delivery and is really meant to be for Christmas because he is walking thru snow but I turned the snow into puddles and thought he would be perfect for autumn as the squirrels are busy this time of year harvesting nuts.
 I've kept my card CAS.  I find this style a nice break from my usual embelli laden creations. 

The Belli Challenge encourages you to use your old or forgotten items.  I've used SB double ended tags, gold brads and scraps of kraft and SU old olive paper.  The sentiments inside and out are from a very old Cornish Heritage Farms stamp set called Mona Lisa Moments. 

Hat: YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91
Fur: E47, E44, E43, E40
Leaves: E09, E07, Y27
YR23, Y26

I will enter the following challenges:

What a beautiful card... it really shows off your fantastic colouring skills. I've just checked out some of your recent cards (I've been soooo busy, not much time to use the computer for anything but "business") and there's some seriously yummy stuff there.... and Happy Anniversary too, btw :-) I hope to get a bit of time for commenting, but as our kitchen reno has started growing legs I may not... I'll still be spying though, whenever I can, Donna xx

Oh my Pat this is absolutely stunning, lovely image coloured beautifully and does so suit the CAS look.
