Autumn Birthday

I've got a just for fun post today, sharing a card I made for a work colleague.  I used the opportunity to practice painting with my Distress Ink re-inkers again. The image seems to be quite dark and I think I need to practice a lighter touch with the paintbrush.

I'm not sure she's into pink either, so I tried to steer away from that colour and opted for a more autumn colour theme in the papers and image.

I think the colours on the image are lovely, the gold accents really brighten it and pull the colours out. Pretty.
