Autumn leaves are falling

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for a sneak peek of Crafter's Companion launch. It's definitely feeling more like Autumn now and I really love Autumnal colours. I haven't used these Papermania Hampstead papers for ages yet they are some of my faves. The image is one of the new Autumn digi range from Squigggle stamps. She has been coloured with Promarkers. I added some Fiskars punched leaves, ribbon and buttons. Distressing used to scare me but now I love it and thought it really suited this card.
Challenges:
Truly Scrumptious Distressing
Crafty Catz 1 image, 2 papers, 3 buttons
Friday Sketch Great sketch
DYSU Brown
Paperplay Autumnal colours
Fussy and Fancy Fall or Halloween
Stampin' for the Weekend Colours of Autumn

Must start getting dinner shortly but will be back later to see if Mr Blogger wants to play nicely today. Don't forget to check out my post tomorrow morning at 9am for a Crafter's Companion bloghop.
