Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge #19


This week over at SCF, the challenge is to use five of something. I decided since I made a fall scene to make my five be leaves!

My DP is Mango Frost from DCWV. The falling leaf stamp is from Stampendous, and the dove is from The Artist Stamps, and I have had this one for years. I used a sentiment from Mel's Wild at Heart, from GKD. Images were colored in Copics, and then the dove was popped. I used an oak leaf punch and accented it with Copic and added touches of gold Stickle for sparkle. Dewdrops and a bow finish off the card.
We did not get a drop of rain from mean old Earl, and he left gorgeous temps and low humidity in his wake! Hope all is well in your little part of the world, and that you have a fun, safe holiday weekend!

This is fabulous, gorgeous fall colors-which I do not want to do, I want it to be Spring and Summer all year round :)..
