Autumn Leaves

Loving Autumn just now, it's like someone has flipped a switch on the 1st October and changed all the leaves.  I read a brilliant wee article in this months Simple Things magazines about the tradition of buying winter boots and wearing them from now til Easter and how smile inducing this is!  It's so true!  They even pointed out that price per wear on boots makes them a bargain.  I live in my boots and the second the weather changes I have them back on my feet.  I have my eye on some gorgeous ones from Fly London at the minute, the only problem is they come in red, green, purple and other colours so how on earth do you make a decision?  Need to win the lottery and buy them all!  That's be nice!

Anyway, onto my autumn leaves card...

The stamp is a Kars one, I have a whole range of these but to be honest couldn't tell you what they are now.  I stamped her onto Papermill Direct linen card and coloured her with Faber Castell Polychromo pencils.  

The leaf papers in the background are DCWV Green Stack, the sentiment and the foreground orange papers are BoBunny Delilah papers. I am a big BoBunny fan and I think this sentiment really makes this card.

The ivory pearls are from Sonas Made...

And here is the colour recipe...
