Forever Autumn

Help! Calling all you eagle-eyed stampers.   This is one of my fav stamps, but I just can't decide if the little girl is reaching for a flower, with her left arm - what do you think??? Is that her hand around the flower???

I used  my fav. papers for this card - Websters Pages - they're so gorgeous, you don't want to cover them up. I did manage to keep the cute little squirrel  in one corner!

Challenges -
CES - 'Forever Autumn'.  I decided to stick with browns for my card, but check out the fab DT work on the challenge blog for some rich Autumn colours. Emma is offering a fab embellie box to this week's winner.
Stampin' for the Weekend - a great sketch from Sandie, with a twist - you must add a butterfly to your creation. The prize up for grabs this week is a $25 voucher from Simon Says.

Stamp - GCS Artstamps, Little Girl    coloured with Copics.
DP - Websters Pages Triple Collection.          Gems are Papermania Mosaics.
Butterfly is a XCut punch.      Butterfly and around the image is sponged with Distress Ink, Antique Linen      Lace ribbon from my stash.

hmm don't know, it's be kind of long if it were her arm. I think you can get away with not colouring it you card is lovely and I don't think I'd even have noticed if you hadn't asked the question.

Hello Caroline, me again lol - just seen you entered this stunning card into SFTW's sketch challenge & what a great job you did with the sketch :) This image is lovely & I think she is reaching for the flowers but her hand is hiding behind them.
