It's definitely Autumn here!

The neighbours here have a sycamore tree, 
which sits on the border between our house and theirs, at the front.
Its a beautiful (and big!) tree, which has been colouring and shedding it's
leaves for the past weeks. 

Infact, when we opened up the door one morning, after a windy night, 
there was a sea of leaves that greeted us! 
We had to wade through them, to get to the cars on the drive!

When the "fall colours" challenge came through this week - 
I just looked out of the bedroom window and tried
to pick *some* of the colours from that tree.

I couldn't possibly find every colour.  Lol. 

So... for our challenge at Glitter n Sparkle 
this week,  I got "air dreamer" image from Ppinky dolls
and played with those colours...


I coloured her with my alcohol markers 
and diecut around her. 
I popped her onto many layers so
that I would have a chance to use a lot of colours.
I even got some gold washi tape in there, which I bought
in Canada lat year, and haven't used yet.
(It's behind the image, going horizontally.)

A couple of paper flowers, layered, finished this card.
I haven't decided on the sentiment for this one yet.
