Feeling more like Autumn

Yesterday i participated in a challenge blog so today i gave a sketch a try, this is something ive never done either but thought i would give it a go.

The sketch is from Sketch Saturday i decided to check it out after viewing bevs blog and saw the gorgeous card she had made.

Because of the silly weather we are having it feels more like autumn today so i decided to make this card in autumn colours

So here is my take on the sketch, I've use a Hanglar & Stanglar image coloured with promarkers, (he was originally coloured in a gold and peach but i didnt have papers that matched and to be honest when i first coloured him i didn't realise it was a him and i coloured him in girly colours, so today i have coloured over the peach with a green, you'd never tell, that's why i love these pens)

The papers are a mix the background is a download from shabby princess and the other is dovecraft, the flowers are prima with a zoom in the centre, the ribbons were from a kit i think it may of been Sarah's cards, the sentiment is from papertrey ink, cut with a cuttle bug and coloured to match the card. the small flourish in the corner is a stamp by autumn leaves, stickles added to his wings for a little sparkle.
