Ribbons and Autumn Colours

For Autism Awareness Blog Candy scroll down. Candy closes on Sunday.

Really Reasonable Ribbons has a challenge this week which is to use a photo for inspiration, and it's sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps. I chose to use the colours as my inspiration, and came up with this:

The image is by Hope Jacare and is avalable here. I coloured her with Promarkers, and edged the image with Wild Honey Distress Ink. For the background, I used Moonglow inks - in Ethereal Emerald and Copper. The sentiment is one of a set of acetate sentiments I bought from The Fruit Pixie, and the flowers are Prima coloured with Promarkers. The ribbon also came from the Fruit Pixie, and I used some to join the flower layers.

The colours feel autumnal to me, so I'd also like to enter the following challenges: Creative Card Crew and Incy Wincy who are both looking for Autumn-themed cards and Crafty Catz who are looking for chocolate and green.
