Flight of Autumn

It is already mid-October and the leaves are taking their time changing in my neck of the woods.  I saw this image in the UK magazine Simply Cards & Papercrafts (Issue 88) and I had to use it.  It is in the digi-stamps and sentiments by David Parkins page insert.  Though the photo doesn't show the dimension well the little leaves are some I pulled off an oak leaf mini garland and are actually silk.  The ribbon was floating loose in the drawer so I don't remember its source.  The same goes for the light blue card paper.  The light brown paper is a page out of an old Sizzix catalog and was just the right color.  Every thing else was colored with Copic markers.

Squirrel: E31, E33, E35, E37, E39

Now if it would only stop raining so the squirrels around here can start strutting around juggling acorns!
