Fabulous Friday - Autumnal Colours

Happy Friday everyone.

I am not here LOL!  I am currently on my way on a road trip to see Shannon at college.  It is our Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend - so as it wasn't feasible for me to fetch and return Shannon - too much travelling!  I decided to take little old me to see her :-)

Was busy yesterday making some batch cooking, of Bolognese Sauce, and a Chicken Pot Pie that we will portion up and put in her freezer :-)  Hubby and Emily will have to fend for themselves this weekend, although they have been invited to have Thanksgiving dinner with friends :-)

So, Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends.

Anways, onto to today's card.  All our challenges at Polkadoodles are now Anything Goes - so that means whatever you create - you can enter!

I have used one of my favourite collections, Dollie Daydream Goes East Collection.

You should know me by now, I very rarely colour anything in.  However, the girl image was faux paper-pieced using the Silhouette Design Studio and then all I had to colour was her skin and hair :-)

For the inside I once again used the same papers as the front.  I have started merging the layers for the insides of my cards.  Not only does it save paper, it saves time and a little bit lighter for postage :-)

I couldn't resist adding some extra lanterns and a fan, using foam tape on several layers to add some interest.

I love the rich colours of the papers in this collection.

Now it's over to you.  Don't forget our challenges are now Anything Goes - so why not enter - you made something!  Then share it :-)

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
