Orchard Love - Saturated Canary

Good morning everyone hope this is the start of a lovely day for you all.
Today's card is my first for the Passion for Promarkers DT, where our challenge this week is 'Autumn Leaves'
 There have to be leaves on your card not just in the papers. Well I decided to go really OTT with the leaves :)  I have used the wonderful Krista's Orchard Love digital stamp.

For a change I made a stepper card. She is just straight cut and I rounded the corners and mounted her on SB decorative labels 8 and backed that with gold mirror board. The leaves are the new SP fall foliage collection, and have been embossed with WOW embossing powders. The mini fir cones were collected outside my office at the beginning of the year and dried and stored lol... I knew they would come in useful.  Butterfly is a Joy crafts die. Ribbon, lace and gems from my stash.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers an a touch of Prisma pencils and distress ink for the clouds in the background.

I did add a little glitter to the fir cones too.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thank you all so much for looking.
Don't forget to pop over and see what the other DT members have created for your inspiration. Hope you enter too
