Hey!  Hope none of you were too shocked to see another post from me already. I'm trying to turn over a new leaf, lol.

Tonight I have a card that I have been working on for quite a while.  For some reason it just didn't come together.  I finally finished last night, after almost a month of trying to find some way to make it work.  Thank goodness for the wonderful inspiration I found on YOUR blogs!  Strange because I really like the image.  It reminds me of myself growing up.
 I used colored pencil on heavy watercolor paper.  I like the sky, but not the children.   Don't expect to use this paper again except on a background.  I do like how the sky turned out, however, and it was fun to do.

The leaf paper is from an older mat stack, which, unfortunately has no cover, so I don't know what it was.  I'm especially sorry about that, because this was the last of these beautiful papers.

 I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Make It Monday
Pinspirational Challenges
Tuesday Throwdown
Everyday Art Challenge
Crafty Sentiments
 Clear It Out Challenges
Can You Digi It 

Thank you for looking at my card.  Hope you are enjoying the Autumn, it's more beautiful here than usual!
