Mo Manning Autumn Card

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Digital Pencil Too and it was my turn to host again. I'm aware seasons and temperature vary around the globe, but here in Romania we start to feel autumn chills and see nice shades of rusty reds in foliage; so I thought an autumn theme would be quite appropriate. Here's an inspiration pic for you today- a nice  bouquet of flowers:


I made a simple card, nothing fancy, I just wanted to color up this gorgeous Mo Manning image called Raking ever since I first saw it.  I love this boy's attitude and this image can be used on so many occasions!


and a close-up:


Tools and materials:
Stamp: Mo Manning- Raking
Medium: copics/Promarkers, chalks, DI
DP: Basic Grey- Pyrus and MME, I think
Embellishments: WOC flowers, pins, gems and button from Bunny Zoe, ribbon and charm from stash;
Dies: Marianne Design forest branch, Magnolia fence die
Misc: clear star stickles, DI, Tim Holtz distress tool
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley

That's it from me for today. So many of you have joined for our celebration challenge...wow! We hope you will join in the autumn fun too! Look forward to see your colorful creations!
Thanks for coming !
Hugs,

you have created a very wonderful card by using quite glorius autumn colours. I love the choice of papers and the design with the flowers, the tendril and ladybird on one hand and with the bow and the button on the other hand. Your coloration has turned out well particularly. The autumn sun is really seen. And the Jo Manning stamp is absolutely gorgeous.
kind regards
Uschi
