Autumn is here

It truly is...! The trees out in our garden are turning into that beautiful red shade, some leaves started falling... and the cold, and the wind, and the rain... It is a beautiful season, really, one can find and appreciate beautiful landscapes around with warm colours.
For today, I decided to make a card with those warm autumn colours. Here it is.
I coloured the fruit basket image with Letraset Promarkers; backing paper from my stash; the yellow and chocolate ribbons are a gift from my friend Wendy; I made the double bow using my "new" homemade bow maker, a great and cheap idea I saw here; I paper pieced the apples in the basket with red Coredinations cardstock, and matted the inchies with yellow and burnt orange Coredinations cardstock; the ticket is a free digital image from Karenika; the sentiment stamp is Papermania.

It enters the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Fall colours
Creative Friday - Inchies
Paper Playtime - Autumn
Wild Orchid - Ribbon and bows
Practical Scrappers - ribbon

Hope you like it!
