Autumn colours

I love the colours in Autumn with all the browns, oranges, reds, yellows and greens as well as all the other shades in between. Pity about the chill in the air, although you do warm up a bit sweeping up all those leaves.

So my card today has an autumn theme and follows a sketch. I used a Don and Daisy image from Marianne Designs which I coloured with Promarkers and layered onto a piece of brown card. The background papers are Prima Botanical Collection and I used a selection of Marianne Creatable dies LR 0157, LR0156, LR0189 for the flowers / foliage. The doily, ribbon, pearls and orange flowers are from my stash. I used chalks to distress the background paper and doily.

This is the sketch I followed from the Sketchy
And the inspirational photo from Don and Daisy

I shall enter this in the following challenges
