Autumn Leaves

It has been a while since l have made a card just for the fun of it and l so enjoyed making this card, especially as there is a real feel of autumn in the air.  The temperature has dropped dramatically these lat few days and the wind is swirling all the leaves around and the conkers are starting to fall too.  I have just had a lovely walk with Toby around Oakwell Hall countryside park which is just down the road from me, it is a good hour walk all the way around with footpaths and bridges crossing the streams and valleys. l loved all the different colours of leaves as they are starting to change colour from green to reds golds and browns and all the different berries which will be feeding the birds over the coming months.
Anyway enough reflecting on my nature walk and on with the card

I do love this card! (by strange coincidence, the same stamp is on my desk ready to get inked!)Marvelous colors for your background matting, and the lovely brown distressing on your focal image. Loved the addition of your leaves as well. I can just feel the 'fall' in the air, looking at this little mousie. Great copic coloring going on here...for some reason, the HMice are harder for me to color well. Love the PB hedgies though! TFS such an outstanding card. Hugs

I am sure your spritzing will be fine after a few practices, yes sometimes it does do that but you will adjust as you go to different flowers etc.

Hugs and happy spritzing
