A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Autumn Colour Inspiration

We have a new challenge for you today at A Gem of a Challenge; this fortnight it's a colour challenge and we have a beautiful photo to inspire you.
I decided to go with an autumn theme as well as autumn colours as this picture instantly made me think of Autumn Bella from the Pink Gem store.  I coloured her with Promarkers and cut her out with a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty-Seven die.
 The papers, sentiment and tag are Papermania Tilly Daydream, to which I added a die cut circle of DCWV self adhesive cork behind the topper to add texture and another autumnal colour.  I also added some faux stitching to the leaf paper to work with the fabric look papers and stitched effect sentiment.
To embellish, I added some organza ribbon with a button topped double bow, some leaves made with Spellbinders Fall Foliage dies, and a button to the tag.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
