Tilda in Autumn

Hi! My card today has a real Autumn/Fall feel to it, to coincide with a few challenges.

I used the sketch from The Sketchy Challenges (link is at the bottom of the post), and decided to be a wee bit cheeky, and use the sketch on both the outside and the inside of my card. It was a super fun sketch to play with, and I found it worked really well on the inside, as sometimes it seems like there is a lot of " white space" on a 6" square card.

Outside of my card:


Inside of my card:

I have used lots of lovely autumn tones to colour up the gorgeous Tilda from the Turning Leaves collection - probably one of my favourite Magnolia collections, and coordinated it with some Graphic 45, Tim Holtz, Pink Paislee and Little Miss Sunshine papers. All edges have been distressed and inked with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy DI, and to embellish, I have used washi tape, a Cheery Lynn doily die, Tim Holtz tickets, and Knick Knackeries pearls on the outside, and Kaisercraft brads on the inside. Other dies used are Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Standard Large Ovals, Standard Circles. Stamps used are Hero Arts (the large text paper on the front is actually this stamp) and Darkroom Door for the sentiment on the inside. Cardstock is Bazzill and X-Press It. Spunky little Tilda is coloured with my Copics (of course!)
Challenges I would like to enter are:
And hopefully my card is Autumny enough for the following challenges: *NB: Ladies, I have used Autumn colours for my card, as well as the Tilda from the Turning Leaves collection, so I hope this fits with your challenges :)
Thanks for stopping by, make sure you pop back, as I will have some great Lime Tart projects coming up very soon :)
