Autumn Goddess

A break from all the Hallowe'en makes. I needed to make a card for one of the girls at work who is leaving us for pastures new.
I used the sketch at Twisted Tuesday Challenges as the inspiration for my layout for this super image from Rick St Dennis, Autumn Goddess.
I used promarkers for colouring her
then matted her onto brown cs. You can just see the glamour dust that I used to high light some of the details.
The base paper is a coral coloured home made paper. I spritzed this with a home made mica spray with a dash of red perfect pearls and a hint of a red re-inker. Just enought glimmer in real life but it doesn't show well in the pic. This matted onto more of that brown then a golden colour card base. The top panel is a piece of core-dinations, embossed, overlaid with ribbon. Some pearl brads and some gems all from stash. The flowers are from Duck Pond Crafts.

I'd like to enter this into the challenge over at
