Autumn Sunflower

Good morning 🙂  I just got in from taking my dog for a walk, and noticed that the leaves are starting to get a yellow autumnal tint to them.  The temperatures certainly feel like fall, and the pumpkin spice craze is gearing up… I guess it’s that time of year 🙂  Which brings me to the theme of the brand new monthly challenge at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook groupAutumn.  I used one of the new images available at Ching-Chou’s Etsy store, called Towards the Sunshine.  I colored the image with my Copics, then fussy cut her out before placing her on a pretty oval shape that was die cut from brown CS.

I decided on a Double Dutch fold card, and, after making the card base, I added some autumn print DP to the panels.  Because I wanted the sentiment on the inside (nope, didn’t get a picture, because my brain hasn’t been attached lately, lol), I was a bit stumped on what to embellish the panels with, without going overboard.  I found a small wooden acorn embelly that went with the acorn on the DP, and added some color to it with Copics.  I then addes some red adhesive dots before calling this card done!!

I’d like to enter this in the following challenges:
