Shades of Autumn for Love to Create Challenge

Hello and Happy Day to you all.  I am honoured and delighted to have been asked to join the Design Team for Love to Create Challenge
This is my first card for Love to Create and our theme this week is Shades of Autumn.  My card features the cute image Bugaboo Brats - Sean Slingshot

Our Sponsor for this week is:

Bugaboo Stamps.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the last Challenge and many congratulations to the winner and fabulous Top 5.

List of Materials used to make this card:

6" x 6" white base Card, mat layer of Kanban embossed card.
Design Paper used is free digital Fallen Leaves Paper found here.  
So cute Sean Slingshot from Bugaboo coloured with Promarker Pens and dungarees created using Paper Piecing Technique. This is such a fun technique to use and produces lots of detail.
Die Cuts are Memory Box Tree and Marianne Frames. 
Tattered Leaves from Tim Holtz have been distressed and folded and have wonderful texture. I have varied shading on the card using Distress Inks in Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, greens, yellow and oranges.  The tonal variation does not show clearly in the photo.
Twine, tile, buttons, beads, shaped frame, rub on edge are from my stash. 

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.  I hope to see your cards soon on Love to Create Challenge

I was delighted when this card was chosen as a favourite of the week at Splitcoast Stampers.
