How to: enjoy autumn

I hope you are having such a nice and warm autumn as I have. Still wearing short sleeves and sunglasses I enjoy the beautiful and colorful trees. This time of the year is called 'Polish Golden Autumn' in my country. It reminds me this picture of me and my Mum when I was about 2.
But as Hercules Poirot sais 'revenons à nos moutons'...
Today a new challenge starts at
and our lovely Janette, who's hosting this one has chosen 
to be the theme of the challenge.
We have two sponsors for this week
How cool is that?

Being inspired by this old pic I created this card.
I am using the sponsors pre-colored digi 'Fallen Maple Leaf' and I have used it as a background for this Inky Impressions digi 'Umbrella Lili'. It's colored with Promarkers and placed on a 3D foam.
For this card I used the freshly bought Kaisercraft's paper pack 'Twig and Berry'. It's an X-mas pack infact, but the colors are definitely autumnal.
The sentiment is a part of the Polish poem written by one of the greatest Polish poets Julian Tuwim. This one is named 'Late summer verses' and it says something like (translation of mine, very lame I'm afraid...)
'See, there's so much of fall!
Full like in the barell of wine,
And it's only a beginning,
it's only starting now!'
The rest of the poem says how beautiful the autumn is.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
I would like to enter the following challenges:

I'm glad you are sharing your project & creativity at 613 Ave C Anna! I love that you took your incredibly rich colors from that old photo of you and your Mom! Those deep reds are insane! Your paper choices, the border punches and the great bling combine to provide a delightful framework for your focal image. Really well done indeed!
