Autumn with Michelle Perkett!

I decided to make an Easel card depicting Autumn and nature this week with one of Michelle Perkett's images called 'Earth'. She's part of a series of 4 images which you can find at Michelle's Etsy shop or Bunny Zoes Crafts shop.

I've coloured her with Promarkers, then added Stickles and inked round the edges, then matted her onto BasicGrey Kraft paper. I put the easel card together using Bazzill green card and BasicGrey papers. I've added Bazzill 'Just the Edge strips' which I've coloured with a Promarker to get the green shade I wanted. I've then added brown ribbon along the centre. The roses have been coloured with Promarkers to give them a brown colour, then I've added some Stickles to the edges of the petals.
I've made a tag onto which I've stamped the lovely sentiment with Sepia Versafine, then added it to the card with some green Bazzill material (the name of it has completely escaped my mind) made into a bow, then a rose added.
Sorry the pic's not too good.

You've still got a couple of days to join the challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio. The theme is Hip not to be Square.

I'm entering my Easel card into these challenges:

Dutch Dare Card Challenge 88 - Tagalicious (the sentiment is on a tag)
ABC Challenge - E for Easel Cards
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Autumn Birthdays
Create4Fun Week 41 Challenge 63 - use a digital stamp
