Shades of autumn

It's Monday again and Mondays are good for me lately.
Today I am soooo proud of myself, because I'm a Guest Designer at
The challenge's theme is SHADES OF AUTUMN and the sponsor for this easy-peasy challenge is

Sooooo, here's my GDT card:
All shades of autumn! I used the sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge:
For this challenge I've had an opportunity to choose one digi from the huge collection of the Bugaboo digis. ONE! What a torture! LOL
Finally I've chosen a stamp called BBrat girl cupcake sitter. Then I thought I've never tried to print and paint a digi on a kraft paper... In fact it's not a clean kraft paper, it's the back sheet of a drawing pad. Anyway it was a very interesting experience, I have to try it again.
I've painted the digi with watercolors and added some glitter - hope you can see it.
The leaves are dismantled from Tesco's autumn decoration I bought lately. This was a twig with lots of such small leaves. And I've notice that any item that has a 'for crafting' label costs more money (sometimes a few times more!) than the other items, for exaple for decorating. I wouldn't be me if I didn't contrive a little... LOL
The sentiment says 'Best wishes'. I also added some bling to the swirls.
The leaves are also inside of the card.
I would like to thank Joann (aka Sassy Raggedy) for helping me with this GDT and the whole LOVE TO CREATE team for choosing me! Take care, Ladies!

I'm entering the following challenges with this card: no purple, no angel, 4 squares of 2 patterns, nothing metal, no green
