Emergency Crafters DT card - Autumn Leaves

When I saw this image I fell in love with it because it reminded of my eldest daughter, just after she'd started nursery.  This was about 16 years ago, so I shall continue to completely embarrass her here: we were walking home past a house with a very old oak tree at the end of it's drive, she shot back to me clutching something in her hand and shrieked "Look mummy I found an apricorn!"

Well as you can guess I had to use this image.

I mounted some autumnal shaded paper onto a card blank, coloured the image with promarkers and use nesting dies to cut it out. I then mounted this onto the card and finished with a ribbon and bow.

DT Card - Somewhere over the Rainbow

For this card I used freebies!!!

The backing paper was free with a magazine years ago and the topper was free earlier in the year.  I used promarkers to colour the image, rounded the corners and mounted onto mirri card with the corners also rounded.

I then mounted the backing paper onto an A6 card blank and added the topper.

Simple yet effective and free!!!!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
