Autumn is in the Air...

Hi Everyone:-)
It's Friday ? and I don't really know where my week went? But I will be glad for the break... the sickie bug has hit our house and I would like it to leave Now!
On to fun stuff:-) Crafts 4 Eternity has a new challenge today, and it is a theme...Autumn colors and theme:-) Our Sponsor is Pink Gem Designs and the prize will be a choice of 4 digis !

My image is one I've had from last year and it's from Plum Purdy Designs, by Reinee Mullins. I was a bit unhappy that my little crow stamped a little see through, But I know if I had tried to use the copic marker over him you would see it and I didn't think it would look right.
So Here is my card today a little bit simple but I didn't want too much around the image as it is smaller then most of my images:-) This little card will be saved for me to hang in my mom's room at the nursing home, since "simple" is what's easier for her to enjoy right now.
Supplies used:
Design Paper: Paper Trey Ink
Ribbon & Circle punches : Stampin Up
Image: Plum Purdy designs
Copic markers used, I will add them later,
Have a great weekend, Thank you so much for stopping for a visit:-)
