Autumn Oranges

I have created a lovely orange coloured autumn card.  I just love orange!


This card is to be entered into the following challenges:

Broken Box Stock - Fall Foliage colour

I have used an orange themed scrap pack for the background.  All these pieces are as they came in the pack - I haven't trimmed them at all (except for a little bit where I didn't line them up properly with the edges of the card but that was neatening rather than trimming!).  The image is from Sassy Studio Designs and is called Fall Fun.  Such a fabulous fun image.  I have die-cut the image using a Spellbinders Labels die and coloured using mainly YR copic markers with the addition of R59 and E000.

The ribbon is one from American Crafts and the wooden embellishments are from my stash.  I added some matte accents to the centre of the sunflower.

I'm happy with how this card turned out and almost wish it was autumn here so I could go and jump in the leaves - it looks like fun!  Instead, we are meant to be having spring but someone forgot to tell the weather that.
