Fun in the Leaves

This is my 2nd card this season that features playing in a pile of leaves.  I absolutely love Autumn, just not the brisk weather that sometimes comes with it.  I especially love making Autumn themed cards that have a mix of muted tones.  For this card I colored my image with Copic, Finecolour and Shinhan markers.  The tree cutout is actually part of the pattern on the digital paper by Lori Whitlock that I was able to print n cut with the Silhouette cameo.  The flower is made from baker's twine using the Double Loop bow tutorial by Ginny @ Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I just wrapped the twine 6 times instead of 2 and glue-dotted it to the button.

Other supplies:
Digi:  Imagine That Digis by Kris - Autumn
Clear skittles and button from stash
