Autumn Gnome

Wow, what a spend up I had at the SECC at the weekend!  We had a wonderful weekend away, but, because of my fibromyalgia, I'm too tired and sore to play with my new goodies yet.  It is well worth a few bad days though, I can't wait to use some of my new purchases.
I made this card before I went away, using this oh so cute free digi from Birdie Brown. He's been coloured with Promarkers in autumn shades.  I went round the edge of the topper with Distress Ink in Scattered Straw to add a bit of warmth.
The patterned papers and sentiment are Papermania, from the Woodland Folk range, which I teamed with a kraft blank, orange wood-grain cardstock and yellow card for matting, adding a punched edge to one of the yellow mats with an EK Success leafy punch.
I finished my card with a ribbon, bow and a die cut leaf and acorn made with my Fall Foliage Spellbinders dies.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Birdie Brown - October freebie challenge
Celebrate the Occasion - #86 - fall
Use It Tuesday - #42 - use orange.  My older stash is the Woodland Folk stuff, I've has it ages
Kaboodle Doodles - #143 - fall
Scrappy Frogs - fall/Halloween
The Ribbon Girls - inspiration photo
2 Sisters - #115 - Halloween or fall colours
