Digital Tuesday -Falling leaves

It's that time of the week again and we have another Digital Tuesday challenge for you. Michelle R is hostess this week and has set the challenge of falling leaves. As you may have guessed by now, Autumn or Fall cards are not my strong point and I really do struggle with them, but I did have fun making this one.
The main image is the new release Emma from Fred She Said, isn't she just gorgeous? and the leaf flourishes image is from Mcmahon 5 designs who are also our sponsor this week. Sue the owner is offering some fab digi's for the winner and has also made a beautiful card to give you some inspiartion. You can check it out on the challenge blog along with the rest of the DT's cards.
I'm not sure who this paper is by because I have had it since last year so I wouldn't even hazard a guess.
The little leaves were just punched with a tiny puch from different scraps of card anf the leaves in the background were silver skeleton leaves that I won in Lorraines blog candy. The silver didn't go with my colours but I really wanted to use them so I sprayed them a few times with gold Cosmic Shimmer and they turned out great. You can't see very well here but irl some of the bits make them look like silk leaves. this is the first time i have used Cosmic Shimmers but I think I will be playing again soon :)
Hope to see some of you over at the challenge this week. You don't need to go overboard with the leaves like I did lol, you can just use some leaf patterned paper or even some leaf brads. As long as we can see leaves somewhere and you have used a digi image then you can enter for the prize :)
Right guess where I have to run to now? That's right I have to run to make it on time for the kids school lol. I really need a car!! Anyone want to buy me one?....Thought not. Oh well will just have to get my running shoes on!

Hi Lora! I love how you worked the 2 images together! It really turned out nice! I just never think to do things like that!!

If it's ok with you can I add it to my Idea Gallery on my website? :)

Thanks for using my image and letting me be a sponsor this week!
