April Elf by Julia Spiri

Ok so I know people's thoughts are turning to winter and Christmas now, but I am still in Autumn mode and refuse to accept winter is here until at least the first of December, so I wanted to share a card I made using April Elf by Julia Spiri. I just LOVE her! Autumn is my favourite season. I just love the colours, the smells and the cosy nights in front of the fire it brings. I actually made it a few weeks ago but life and work got in the way of sharing. She is way too stunning to escape blog land though so she's putting in a late appearance!

She is coloured in copics. The leaves are die cut using a Tim Holtz die, and the flowers are a mixture of shop bought and handmade by me.

Oh and while I think on it, there is a new challenge over at Julia Spiri Challenge Blog with the theme as Anything Goes with a Twist of Alter Something. You may want to check it out!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
