Thinking of you Autumn Card

Good morning crafters.  My card today is autumn themed, rich browns, reds and greens.  I started off with white cardstock and used metallic acrylic paint in bronze and blue for the background.  I then stamped the trees in black.  I added this to the card base, together with designer paper from my stash.  The lovely image is Aurora Maple, I coloured her with my Spectrum Noir pens.  I then added leaves and flowers die cut from the designer paper with my Cuttlebug, finished off with a few amber coloured embellishments to give a bit of sparkle. Finally, I added a sentiment at the top.
Here is my list of materials used -

Memento Ink pad Tuxedo Black
Tree stamp by Kanban Crafts
Sentiment stamp by Personal Impressions
Acrylic paint metallic blue and bronze
Aurora Maple digi stamp from The East Wind Company
Bo Bunny Forever Fall designer paper
Amber embellishments from my stash
Spectrum Noir alcohol pens - 
Skin FS1, FS2, FS3, TN2, CR3
Hair GB1, GB8, GB10
Leaves TN6, TN7, GB10, OR1, OR2, OR3, DR1, DR2, JG1, JG4
