An autumn tag

Haven´t put a sentiment on this tag yet. Are not sure if I am going to use it as a gift tag or as a bookmark yet... Anyway, used up a bit more of this wonderful pumpkin paper from Bo Bunny and used another sweet digi from Di Designs. I love this tree dies too, with the cute owl...

I used three different dies on this tag and two different punches. The tree and owl, the notepaper that became grass and the big leaf up the top. The butterfly and the small leaf is punched. I have coloured the digital stamp with my ProMarkders and some Faber Castell pencils. I love the colours on this tag, don´t you?

I would like to enter this tag into following challenges:
Di Designs Challenge - Fabulous Fall Colors
Delightful Challenge - Happy Fall Yall

Beautiful Fall

I  love autumn with all the splendid colours. I have used one of Di Designs cute digital images to make this card. I tried to use a lot of the fall colours, like orange, brown and yellow. I kept it as clean and simple as I could. I wanted the image to be the main focus point. The paper is last years fall collection from Bo Bunny and I also used some flowers from my stash. I coloured with my ProMarkers and Faber Castell pencils.
