"Leaf Me Alone" for The East Wind

It's time for a new FB contest at The East Wind, and our fitting theme this month is "Leaf Me Alone", so we want to see leaves, either in the image, the DP, or embellishments.  Since tomorrow is the first day of Autumn in the northern hemisphere, I chose the gorgeous Aurora 'Maple' for my project.  I can't wait until the leaves start to turn.  It's truly my favorite time of year.  I pulled a number of seasonal colored papers from my stash and added a Prima flower, silk leaf and die cut twig wreath.  The sentiment is a sticker from???

Here's a closeup of the beautiful Aurora 'Maple'. She's colored with Copics with just a touch of shading from Prismacolor Pencils and I've used a Spellbinders Grand Oval to cut her out.  Be sure to visit The East Wind FB Group to view my teamies' inspirations and please come play along.  This contest runs through October 17th and don't forget, a new digi is released every Tuesday and Friday in the Group as well.  Our current Blog challenge, I Like to Move it, Move it!  is so fun and creative so be sure to stop by there as well.  

Here are of all the important links you need.
