It's definitely Autumn!

The clocks have gone back,
 the weather is turning colder,
and the leaves look like jewels -  rich oranges, golds and browns....

So, over at Glitter and Sparkle, we have the theme :
"Fall / Autumn"

(I'm from the northwest of England, so it's 
Autumn for me, although I love the word "fall".)

My image is form Bugaboo and is called "Autumn Jar."

I loved colouring this image with my promarkers.
I decoupaged some the sunflower, the pumpkin and the acorn.

The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat 
(which is soon to close, so pop over there and grab a bargain in the sale, while you can!) 
which I thought completely suited the image.
I wanted to keep this card clean and simple. 
I added a simple line and dotted frame, with a brown and an orange fineliner.
Then, I finished by matting onto a backing paper and inking all the edges.

Wonderful selection of cards since I las popped in Vic. It's Autumn for me every time, Fall doesn't conjure up the beautiful colours in my mind that Autumn does :o)
