I Love Promarkers DT Card

Well, you could have knocked me down with a feather when, after guesting for a month, the lovely ladies at I Love Promarkers asked me to join the DT as a full time member!  Of course I jumped at the chance to join such a talented team and here's my first project for them.
The theme this time is "Colours of Autumn", so why not get busy with your Promarkers in your warmest shades and play along.
The image I've used is Lili of the Valley, which has been coloured with my Promarkers, the grass and sky were then coloured with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters, using a dusting brush and paper masks.  I then added some Glamour Dust to the wings for a bit of sparkle.  The sentiment stamp is from a mega handy Personal Impressions set, which I've added to a die cut banner, made with a Spellbinders die, which has been given a hint of colour with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
The papers are geriatric Papermania ones from years ago, the colours and designs are perfect for autumn projects, and I've teamed them with some orange wood-grain cardstock.
I added a bit of texture and interest with some brown lace, peach ribbon and a multi loop bow with a gem brad in the middle.  Some warm yellow gems and some teeny weeny punched leaves finish it off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sassy Cheryl's - #135 - fall
Kaboodle Doodles - #139 - autumn colours
Stamp with Fun - #181 - autumn
Tammy's Scrappin' Corner - #30 - autumn colours

Graphicat - #17 - sketch
