Autumn thanks

Hello! I hope you had fab weekend. We have new and simple challenge for  you this week at Paper Makeup Stamps. It's: Welcome Autumn. We'd love to see your Autumn cards. And don't forget to use a digi image :o)

I used on my card a Color it Autumn stamp set. Digi's are so fantastic, you can re size them as you wish. So I popped up my pumpkins on top of the Maple leave. It's bit strange that leave is bigger then pumpkins but this leave remind me a palm of the hand :o) The background paper is again my own made...  Michelle, tutorial will come soon :)

'Thank you'
 All coloring is done with ProMarkers. I enjoyed coloring of those pumpkins :o) The sentiment is computer generated and all letters are punched out one by one and popped up with foam tape. I added some 'Mandarin' color to the sentiment. 

Matting layers in inside and front of the card are in different color. I plan the layout of my card in computer. Here is my print out sheet (except the grey text on it)

I knew I want some colorful strips on to it. All pieces on front are separate and clued on top of each other but inside is on two layers: matting layer and pattern paper with leave and two white stripes to color with same marker as matting layer will be. I had to print all pieces out on Friday at work because I didn't had ink in my printer at home. So, later at home, I thought that brown looks nice, but after coloring those white stripes, it seemed too dark. I wanted my card be brighter, but I couldn't reprint it. So I just did brown matting layer to inside, and orange on front of the card. At least it adds some interest :o) 
I added some white gel pen to the thin colored stripes and made some embossed lines to the pattern paper.
