Autumn's here

Yes, Autumn is definitely here.  We've had a couple of miserable, dull days and it hasn't been possible to go out without a coat.  It's much brighter today and I'm sat with sun shining in on me through the kitchen windows.

I've made a card for a chap with an Autumn birthday using an Edwin stamp from one of the older collections.
The design was inspired by the sketch at The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge #16.  All of the patterned papers are from the new Amy Tangerine range at American Crafts and the ribbon is from American Crafts too. 
Edwin is coloured with Copics.  his hat and jacket are in a combination of BV00, BV02, BV04, which I have just treated myself to.  I've masked him to stamp the leaves behind with an Imaginisce Snag'em.  After the leaves had been stamped I realised I used a VersaFine ink pad, so I have coloured them with Whisper pens.
The little message is from a Dovecrafts mini stamp pack.  The inside has been finished off simply with a panel of patterned paper and the leaf stamp.

I think this is one of my fave cards of yours! I love the little character and its so different from many of the other characters out there and the colours are wonderful.

My cameo actually came from a layout I made at this years Scrap-a-Mia but it featured my husband so I always knew I would pull it off at some point. It was Emma Trout's class so I will ask her.
