Autumn cutie

Hi everyone,

Okay, I'm back again as promised with my little surprise.  A few days ago the winners of the DT call at the fabulous Paper Shelter Challenge were announced.... and I was selected.  Thank you everyone for your good luck wishes ...they worked (smile).    It's an honour to create with these wonderful images and I'm so happy to be a member of this great group of crafters.

My official start date was not until next week but Marie, our lovely team leader, told us we could jump in here I am with my first card using Autumn Leaves that can be found here. I really enjoyed colouring this cutie with Copics.   The challenge this week is to use stitching....real or faux.

Card base was made using MS Cherish punches starting with a 6.75" square.
The flowers are from WOC and leaf dies are cut using SB Foliage dies.
The ribbon is from my stash and the berries are from Michaels...last years Christmas clearance.
DP is a old stack from Recollections called Autumn

Challenges I am entering:
Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #134 - Fall colours
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #120 - Kids
Created with Love Challenges #59 - Fall Colours
Digi Makeover Challenge #107 - Anything Goes
Craftin Desert Divas -  Autumn/Fall

I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger lately but hope to get around to see you all as soon as things settle down here at home.   Thank you for visiting,
Pat K xx

Congratulations, Pat! They are so lucky to have you! Your creation is gorgeous, but I have to say you've done a fabulous job in the coloring of the image - that darling little butterfly gliding down on the leaf is precious! Super sweet, and wonderful colors. Well done, and looking forward to seeing what else you create for them! hugs, de
