Autumn Fairy

I have made this card with 2 challenges in mind.  The digi image is by Gurukitty Designs, I have coloured her in PS, but thought the colouring didn't do her justice, so copied each leaf and pasted it, then added a different gradient to each of them, I coloured her hair orange and hope you think she is as colourful as I wanted her to be, I stickled her hair, she is a fairy after all LOL.  The background is also done in PS, I made a circle and copied a leaf colour then added a pattern to it, making it look textured (I hope), I then cut a red piece of Papermania cardstock and layered all on top of it, I wanted her out of the circle, why? I really don't know, just did.  I then added the sentiment using the font Hill House, as I liked the circles in it, I also used a gradient on that too, I then added some extra leaves making it more autumnal.  I hope you like it.  I have uploaded the closeup instead of the card - sorry, slip of the finger.




















I shall be entering the following challenges, the 2 I had in mind when doing this card.
