Forever Autumn

Well the weather, here in Yorkshire, has definitely changed over the last week or so - wet, windy and cold.
So our FOREVER AUTUMN challenge at CES is an appropriate theme for me.
Karen is our lovely host this week, and we would like to see your autumn inspired images or colours.

I combined a couple of images for this card, a Gorjuss Girl and the Open Window, both coloured with Copics.
The DP is one of my favs - My Mind's Eye, Mabel.

To the window box I added a couple of punched leaves and various blooms, with pearl and gem centres.

Don't forget to head over to the blog to see the amazing work of my teamies - their work always blows me away. And, if you enter the challenge you could find yourself with a £10 voucher to fill your CES basket with goodies.

Challenges -

Papercraft Star - Inspirational Picture + leaf (my leaves are tucked behind the blooms)
