Autumn pumpkin girl

It's getting really cold and fall-like where I live. The leaves are starting to change colours and the air is crisp and slightly too cold for me in the nights. No more sleeping with the window open :) I love this time of the year though and I'll try to take some photos soon of the beautiful nature I have in the neighbourhood.

I got very inspired with this bi-weekly sketch at basic grey challenges. I got so inspired I whipped up a card within one day (GASP! lol) The basic grey things I have used are the three papers. They are from the green at heart collection and are from left to right: recycle, seeding and grasshopper. I have used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the orange autumn words panel and a tree die from quickutz. As always I have used my promarkers to colour the image and the ribbon that used to be white.

The stamp I have used is from sweetpea stamps and it's called Lil' witch by Samantha Rawling. I absolutely adore her drawings and I could barely wait to get my hands on them. This is my first card with her images and I have a feeling there will be many more.

Besides the basic grey challenge I also used these:

Drunken stampers - fall
Simon says stamp - autumn
Stampin for the weekend - autumn
Stamptacular - season's change
