And what a fate awaits you

For today's post, here's an autumn colored ATC. Did you know that Autumn is my favorite time of year. It's when the air is crisp, you get to warm warm fuzzy sweaters, the leaves turn golden colors and the afternoon sunlight is the prettiest of the year. With this in mind, I used Autumn as my inspiration.

 The lovely girl image is a RAK from a friend in Australia. To surround this pretty image I used an  ATC Fancy frame  from Retro Cafe Art, I think they set off ATC's perfectly and love to use them. I painted it with layers of gold, copper and other metallic paints then trimmed it with Gold Stickles for shine.The Grungy background is from Retro Cafe Art too. The autumn colored paper flower is from the Flying Unicorn store that I painted with watercolor paint and more gold Stickles. A tiny flower button tops the flower. The sentiment reads "And what a fate awaits you?"

So dear friend, what fate awaits you this week?
take care, gerri
"And what a fate awaits thee?"

  4. Beautiful autumn card Gerri. Also the golden hoghlights, fabulous. Marvelous flower you have made also in this colors.
    My favorite season is the Spring, when everything is growing, the sun will be shining and everybody come out of their houses. But I love the spring because of their beautiful autumn colors.
