Happy Fall/Autumn!!

Wow...we had a couple of really cold mornings this past week (45 degrees on my car barometer on Monday morning!)  Nothing like going from 70's to 40's in a weeks time!!!  I guess that means Fall is here!!  We don't really have spring or fall here in Northern Kentucky. We go right from scorching to freezing without much pause in between!!  So in anticipation of Fall/Autumn's arrival, everyone is thinking about chilly weather and Halloween!!    Thus the many Fall/Autumn/Halloween challenges starting up.  I just recently discovered Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps and there are some darling images!!  I couldn't help but purchase this  Sassy Sally's Fall Pumpkin image and make a card with it right away!  I use Prisma pencils, and unfortunately, after I had colored the image, the blue on her skirt smeared quite a bit. Don't know why, but she was so darn cute, I decided not to waste the image.  The patterned paper behind her is from DCWV's Fall Stack.  I used brown chalk around all the ages to distress/age it up a bit as I did the gold frame she is matted on.  I die cut the leaves out in the lower left corner using My Creative Time's "Piles of Smiles".  I chalked them up a bit, and curled the edges so they would be lifelike!  The sentiment "Autumn Greetings" is also from the same "Piles of Smiles" stamp set...  Got to admit...Emma has it going on!!  Hope you enjoy!  Please feel free to comment on my creations good or bad!  They all help me learn!!

Oh I like that paper! She is a doll and I don't see the smear so I say your good. Love how you piled up the leaves.
