Window in Autumn

     Sharing another autumn card with a delightful image from Beccy's Place.  I think it's called Autumn Window but it's in the set of seasonal windows Beccy has done.  I love all four of the windows in the set - one for each season.  I've used this fall window a couple of times before but each time I color the stonework differently.  This time, I used dull yellows, browns, and grays.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday
but turned it sideways.

     I colored it with my ProMarkers, using the ultra fine tips for the branches and the smallest leaves.  I cut it with the largest square die in the first die set I ever bought from Spellbinders.  I inked the edges twice to make it look matted and layered it onto patterned dp from Jillibean Soup.  Then, I did the sentiment, printed and hand cut.

     For simple embellishments, I used pumpkins in the lower corner (cut with dies from Impression Obsession) and leaves in the upper corner (cut with a die from Dies R Us.)  I added sheer beige ribbon which I tied by hand.

What a great choice of colours NC, definitely an autumn inspired palette. I love the way you've coloured the stonework, the variations in colour give it a lovely natural look. Great job on the background and embellishments too, those leaves and little pumpkins are a wonderful addition. Love it!
