Autumn is here

Well summer's been and gone.... Well its gone, I don't know if its actually been....

There's a few of autumn challenges this week and I totally looooove this stamp by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD (Available at Quixotic) called Rian. She just says Autumn to me :)
I've used the sketch from Papertake Weekly which is the T sketch as I call it and happens to be one of my favourites (easily the one I do the most) so that also meets the criteria over at Stamp Something which is favourite sketch.
My time to craft, Stamp with fun and Allsorts are all autumn themes this week and Pile it on is punches so I'm entering for them also and the card is for the world cardmaking swap on do crafts!
OK, base card is starburst stains in Cajun carnelian red from the mardi gras set Its a rich orangy golden colour. Background paper is I think HOTP and then the rest of the papers are starburst stains in a variety of colours and mixes. I used a maple leaf punch on a sheet of mixed autumn colours so there is a variety of leaves in different colour stages like green, orange, yellow and brown. Image was coloured with promarkers using almond, blush, vanilla, pastel pink, gold, honeycomb, cocoa, chestnut (think tha was it!) and sentiment was a do crafts freebie.
Thanks for looking!
