Autumn days

Hello all,
well I don't know about you but I think it is so cold today, it really feels like winter is setting in-not be long before that heating goes on!!
I have spent a few hours in my shed today -only one more week till the school fete so thought I'd better get my skates on and make a couple more cards to top up my collection. Have got the whole day to myself tomorrow so am hoping for a repeat of today and will finally have enough to take with me-just hope I don't bring them all back again lol!!!
This card today is using an image I won from a blog challenge and is from the Paper Shelter, coloured with my promarkers.
There are so many challenges out there at the moment with autumn themes I thought she would be perfect. The papers are a mix of Wild Rose Studio and from my stash-I found it quite hard to find papers with oranges and browns as I think I tend to buy pinks, blues and purples!! I punched out some leaves to match and used my Marianne die to cut the flourish, adding some pearls to finish.

I would like to enter her into the following challenges:
The Paper Shelter challege 82 - Fall images
The Crafty Pad challenge 188 - Autumn Colours
Lollipop crafts challenge 90 - Break out your punch
Papertake Weekly challenge A hazy shade of autumn
Bearly Mine challenge -Fall Colours

Having neglected all jobs round the house today I think I'd better go tidy up a bit before I sit and watch X factor!!!
Until next time.
