Fitztown - Fall Colours

This is my card for the challenge over at the Fitztown Challenge Blog - Fall Colours. I chose the image Garden 6 because I reckoned the chickens would be perfect in Fall Colours or as we would say here in the UK, Autumn Colours. Check out the fantastic images here and you'll find my image and lots of other images suitable for this challenge. 

My card is an 8x8 square by Joanna Sheen. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut it with the Spellbinder classic square, backing it with the scalloped square. The orangey/red card is by Papermill and I used two different shades for the mat, image mat and sentiment backing. The backing paper is from a First Edition pad called Hideaway. I used a mix of Spellbinder dies to cut some leaves to follow through the Fall/Autumn theme, though it's only the colours that are necessary for the challenge. The sentiment was generated on the computer, cut with more Spellbinder dies, and I think I should tell you that this is a term of endearment in this area of the UK. lol 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
My Besties UK Challenge - Anything Goes with wings
Creative Moments Challenge - Anything Goes with Fall Colours
Divas by Design Challenge - Anything Goes
QKR Stampede - Things with Wings
Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - All Creature Great and Small
