Autumn/Give Thanks

Time for a new challenge at All Dressed Up and the theme for this one is Autumn Colours/Give Thanks so you can either use autumn/fall colours on your project or give thanks or do both!  I did both but I have to tell you, using the fall colours was a bit of a stretch for me because although I love the earth tones, I rarely use oranges or yellows.  ...and just in case you didn't notice, I thought I should point out that I DID NOT use Frantage anywhere on this card, not even on the inside where you cannot see!  I coloured the image with Copics and added some Stardust Stickles, sponged in some Tim Holtz Distress Ink Weathered Wood for shading and Antique Linen for distressing the edges.
This sweet little gal is one of the new releases from the All Dressed Up Etsy shop and is called All Wrapped Up.  Be sure to stop and check out the rest of the design team's creations... Team A has created some fabulous projects!  The challenge rules are simple.  You have to use an All Dressed Up image and there are several freebies posted on the challenge blog or you can scoot on over to the Etsy shop and have a peek at some of the cutest digis ever!  The winner will receive three digis of their choice from the shop plus the team selects a Top 3 so come on, what are you waiting for?
Supplies:
Image:  All Wrapped Up
Sentiment:  Papertreyink Out on a Limb
Paper:  Bo Bunny's Autumn Leaves Song

Hi Marilyn,
Thanks for the comment you left on my ADU girl in my Splitcoast gallery. YOU were actually the person whose blog inspired me. I am going to post the card on my blog in a couple of weeks and have credited you and linked to your blog. I'm also blaming you for enabling me to spend money at three different sites yesterday. I'm a new follower ~ although I'm worried about how much self control I'll need to use when I visit. Your cards are gorgeous. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.
Hugs, Cathy (corysnana1)
