Challenge #65 for the Squirrel and the Fox

Autumn is here and the challenge at TSAF is to make either a Spring or Autumn card - as I live in the Southern part of the world, Autumn it is! The weather for the last few days has been brilliant - warm, blue skies and sunny days! I do love Autumn here!


We were given some images to choose from by our wonderful sponsor this challenge


who are offering 4 free digi's to the winner!
(PS, they are having a new release starting on the 7th)


I chose an image called Autumn Collage and used Copics to initially colour it and then added TH Distress inks - Antique Linen and Tea Dye and then added some Smooch for a bit of sparkle. 

You can see some of the glimmer here on the leaves - I put it on and then sort-of polished it off so only just a bit remains. I then fussy cut around the image and then cut it into three and mounted it onto black card.


I added some other mounts in yellow and blue card from a mat stack of brights by DCWV. This is then put on a base of white card from Blue Edge Crafts.  The sentiment comes from SU - Loving Thoughts. 


Another look at a different angle out of the full sun. 
I will enter this in the following:

The sort of card none of us like to make. Love how you have made it a triptage with bold colours balancing the black. Thanks for joining in with our 'Butterfly Kisses' at PFP this week, and good luck
