Crafts 4 Eternity Sketch 51 & By the Cute & Girly - Autumn

Hi to all my regular blogging friends and some new ones too I hope. Good of you to visit.

I really like the sketches that are given on the Crafts 4 Eternity Challenges and this one with its octogons is no exception. I also decided to enter it into the new By the Cute & Girly challenge where the topic is Autumn.

The backing paper I used is 7 gypsies. The octagonal papers are from Debbi Moore Designs. I punched out flowers on Debbi Moore's papers using a Retro Punch. The image is Magnolia's "Tilda with Dalecarlia Coat" coloured with Copic Ciaos. I'm quite pleased with the end result and I hope you are too. Please leave a comment if you have the time. It would be very much appreciated.
