Cutie Pie DT Card - Cute Shades of Autumn

We have a new challenge for you today at Cutie Pie, this fortnight our theme is, "Cute Shades of Autumn", and we're sponsored by Bugaboo.  I used a Tilly Daydream stamp that I bought when it was released, then never used.....oops!  I coloured her with Promarkers, used a Spellbinders die (fab birthday present!) to cut her out, used Wild Honey Distress Ink to add a bit of colour, and stamped a leaf design round the edge, whilst the card was still in the die, using a tiny stamp from the same stamp set as the image, and more Wild Honey Ink.
 The backing paper is also from Papermania's Tilly Daydream range, I've added to the autumnal theme by embossing some Bazzil Bling cardstock with a Swirling Leaves, Embossalicious folder, then gently sanding to highlight the pattern.
To embellish, I used Sue Wilson Faux Quilled Flower dies (another fab birthday prezzie!) to make flowers and leaves, I added yellow gems and red pearls, and I recycled the lovely orange ribbon from my birthday cake!
