Pollycraft Monday Challenge #107 Autumn Colours

It's Monday and isn't it a lovely one this week?!  Well it is for us, our trip finished early and we got back home last night instead of still being busy working today!  

It's time for a new challenge at Pollycraft Monday and the challenge this week chosen by Sheena is to use Autumn Colours!  The sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe Crafts and the prize is a £10 voucher to spend!  So head on over to the Challenge blog and get some inspiration from the fabulous creations from the design team!

Now I must admit that this one had me totally stumped for a while as I'm not a very autumny colour sort of person, but then my order from Crafty Emma's Store arrived and I found I had ordered these delicious papers from Crate Paper called School Spirit Collection that fit the theme perfectly!

Here's my card:

I have been dying to colour up this sweet fairy from the Swings and Slides Enchant and Explore set for ages but hadn't had time until now.  I coloured her up with copics (see details below) and was inspired to try something different with the wings from Barbara's stunning fairy wings here, but I couldn't find the pic to copy at the time so I had to do it from memory.  Hhhmmm maybe better next time.

The papers are from Crate Paper, the tag and the gem are from Maya Rd and the corner embellishment is from Make it Crafty.  The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl.  The sentiment is cobbled together from the Sonny Says and Critters and Cogs sentiment sets at Pollycraft.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Designed 2 Delight Saturday Challenge: Anything Goes
Annabelle Stamps: Say it with... Distressing
Crafts 4 Eternity: Flags, Tickets or Tags

Here's a close up of the gorgeous wee fairy:

And these are the copics I used:

Happy Monday!  I hope you can join us!  Oooh and did you see the button on the sidebar?  We are having a blog hop to celebrate some gorgeous new releases from Pollycraft and there will be some fabulous prizes, so be sure to check back on the 24th to join in the fun!
