Autumnal Raven

Hi everyone!
I hope you have all had a great week and are enjoying your weekend. I wanted to share with you a card I designed for a class with an Autumnal feel. The beautiful image is Raven from Sugar Nellie and I thought she'd look great with the gorgeous warm DP's from the Indian Summer collection from Basic Grey. All edges were distressed with Walnut Stain then I added lts of leaves, lace and bling!

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - A Change of Season
Basic Grey - #31 'Autumn/Harvest Time'
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C59 'Fall/Autumn'

I used Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick Distress Ink Pads to colour the oval nestie.
