Lacy Sunshine Fall Colors Challenge

Just under the wire for the Lacy Sunshine Fall Colors Challenge.  Back with the deets in a minute.  Ha!  I actually had an hour yet.  Well, time always flies when you're having fun and I sure have fun with these images.   Decided to do a Twisted Easel and I think this may be the first I've done.  the DP is K&Co and the leaves are an ancient punch.  the mats for the image and sentiment are Nesties Labels Seventeen.

I've used the adorable Autumn Melancholy Moppet (scroll down to find yours).  The expression on her face just tears at my heart strings.  She's obviously missing her love.  I've colored her with Copics and added a few brown adhesive pearls to her hair and hatpins.  (Don'tcha just LOVE her hat?)

While coloring her, the beautiful song "Autumn Leaves" kept running through my mind so I used the lyrics for my sentiment.    My favorite version is by Eva Cassidy. (Sorry about the Russian text, I liked the slide show)

I've added some Recollections flowers and a plaid fiber bow to finish it off.  Hope you like.

I'm also entering this in the Outlawz Paper ala Mode ATG challenge, Brown Sugar Autumn, Card Crafter's Circle Autumn Splendour, Shelly's Images Fall Photo Inspiration, Crafting with Dragonflies Nature/Trees/Leaves, and The Paper shelter Easel Cards.


  1. Ohhhhh Donna! I have to say that this is my favorite card this challenge! Your coloring is awesome and the added pearls in her hair are stunning. The leave look so real. Twisted easel with the image off set looks fantastic! Can you tell I just love this? Oh I do I do!!!! big hugs xxxooo

  2. I love your twisted easel card Donna! That image is beautiful and she does look like she is missing someone special! Her eyes are so sad.
