Is Summer Quirky over? That was quick!

For the past two weeks we have been remembering Summer days on the Quirky blog, but now the leaves are definitely falling, and despite the second summer which is making it very pleasant, it is getting dark earlier and earlier, and fruit is ripe in the hedgerows and gardens.
Monica has set us the challenge of falling leaves today, and we are sponsored by the wonderful Stitchy Bear Digital stamps who are generously giving three prizes to our top three entrys.
I used one of Ike's Art images called Fall Cat, with some lovely swirly paper which comes in a pack by Coosty Creations called Autumn Fruit Basket and paper pack. Fall Cat is coloured with Promarkers. I die cut panels of dark orange card and the swirly paper, stamped a sentiment with a Hero Arts stamp in bronze and heat embossed it, then die cut it and layered it up. 
The "ribbon" is from Lidls and has three strands, two of string and one of silver cord, threaded with wooden beads. I thought it would go perfectly with this card.
I decorated the inside with bronze paper and offcuts from the swirly paper.

Hop on over to Quirky Crafts to see some more great examples, and to join in the fun.
