Autumn leaves are falling

I was given the honor of being a guest designer on the My Besties Germany challenge blog this time around, and since the theme is colors of autumn/falling leaves, I chose this adorable image.   I've colored her with prismas and gamsol and truly, I did have a perfect autumn print paper chosen for the background, and once again, I've covered up the majority of it with embellishments!   Seriously, I wonder why we spend so much time at this, and then just cover it up anyway - hahaha.  I was glad to find I had these autumn leaves in my stash, as well as the perfect tone of flowers.  I popped my image up a bit for a more 3-D effect, and then it gave me the chance to insert the little doily with my verse on it.   Hope you get the chance to join in the challenge this time around!!
