Autumn flowers

Albert Camus once said: Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. 

I think he was right about that. Actually I think he was right about many things. Camus is one of the reasons I have been an existentialist for almost a decade now. Read more about my existentialism here. (I must not confuse my crafts blog with my writing blog.)

Anyway, for this autumn card I used one of Hannah Lynn's images, named Cali Girl. I colored the image with Promarkers and added some leaves to her hair. Some of the leaves come from a template pattern pack for Crafts Beautiful September 2010, while the other leaves plus pumpkin have been cut out from various magazines. I have found the gorgeous autumn frame here.

I have used lots of Stickles for the leaves, pumpkin and frame. You can find the following Stickles in my card: Cinnamon, Diamond, Eucalyptus Green, Fruit Punch, Orange Peel, Tropical Tangerine and Yellow. 

The background has been hand marbled by me, with Marmoreringsfärg

Finally I have submitted this card to the following challenges:
