Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Autumn Colours

Hello, my friends.  There's a brand-new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is Autumn Colours.   Hooray for me - I got to work with another kitty image - you all know I love them so much.  This little sweetheart is called Feline Flower and she's from Digi Darla Designs, one of our generous sponsors. 

I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  I wanted to keep this card fairly simple to show off the image so I didn't add a lot of embellishments.  The patterned paper is from Trimgym's Digistamps, Paper, and Images, which I got as a freebie for playing along in her challenges (thank you, Jo).  I added a die-cut butterfly from Memory Box (Moonlight and Kaleidoscope) that I got for my birthday last month.  Just love all my new dies - thank you, Brian.  The gold cardstock is embossed with Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes, and I added some gems for a little bling.  And the birthday sentiment is a wood-mount stamp from The Old Island Stamp Company.  Here's a close-up of the coloured mage.
I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Autumn Colours challenge - as usual, we have some great prizes up for grabs, thanks to our generous sponsors:
Sandi's Samples - 4 images
The Stamping Chef - 3 images
Fred She Said - $10 gift certificate
Digi Darla Designs - 5 images
