Good evening to you all. My card tonight uses an image by Mary Helen Sims that I have coloured with Promarkers and distressed the edges with walnut stain. My backing paper is a download from Brownie Scraps very aptly named "Autumn Splendor" The leaf is a cuttlebug die that I have distressed to try and make it look authentic.The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp I think. I hope you like it.

I am entering this into

ALLSORTS "Spots and Stripes"
PINK ELEPHANT  "Brown and Orange"
RAINBOW LADYS "Autumn Foliage" 
BUNNY ZOE'S "Autumn Love"
