Time for Fall with Tilda!!!!

This week a challenge at Sweet Stampin Challenge took my interest.  The challenge was to dust off the punches. When I first started with paper crafts, I loved leaves.  I purchased who knows how many punches of maple and oak leaves.  I still love them and I loved the Tilda image under the leaf.  So I started my project set out to use those punches.
The leaf punches are mostly EK Success, Marvy and some Sizzix dies.  I used K&company paper by Tim Coffey.  For coloring sweet Tilda, I used Copic markers.
Face - E000, E11, E01, R20
Sweater - YG91, Y38, YR12, Y17
Pants - B00, B34, B95
Boots - Y04, YG91, Y18
Leaf - Yr23, Y38, Y17 and YR31

I added to clock face with Tim Holtz spinners as an embellishment.  I kept the image free of glitter and sparkle since I will be donating to Operation Write Home.  It did take alot for me not to want to add stickles on the leaves.
The large circle was cut out with the Martha Stewart circle cutter.  Which I have my days of like and dislikes with this cutter.  It's great if you just want to cut a circle, but if you want to place a cut out - it takes come skill for centering.

The inside of the card is where the Tilda image is glued on a torn edge mat that has been distressed with Vintage photo.  I glued more of the smaller leaf punches around her boots.

When the card is standing, you can see the number of leaves I glued around the card for dimension.
I hope you enjoyed this week's card.  I love lil Tilda surrounded by the leaves.  It made me dig out my Fall sweatshirts and sweaters - well I guess the tempature drop to 45 degrees helped too.
