     You can sure tell that we've moved into a new season.  The days are much shorter, leaves are gradually changing color, the squirrels are busily burying their supply of food for winter, robins are flocking, and the countryside has turned from green to brown and farmers are hard at work harvesting their crops.  It's a really busy time of year for everyone and there are always lots of fun activities connected with this time of year. With many of the trees shedding their leaves, there always seems to be a pile of leaves for kids to play in and that's why I enjoyed making this card -- it depicts a little girl having fun in the leaves!
     The card base is a piece of Basic Grey paper on brown card stock from my stash.  The stamp is a Magnolia which I colored with Copic Sketch markers.  To carry out the theme and "the colors of Autumn" I embellished the card with some silk "leaves" and flowers.  I also used a Tim Holtz ticket saying "Giggle" as a final touch.  I am entering this card in "The colours of Autumn" challenge at:  I hope you enjoy this card and I appreciate any comments you may leave.
