Shy Bear for Fall

Just a quick post before I head off to the kids' school for "Family Fall Fest".

This image is one of Shy Bear ~ isn't he cute.  Insetad of coloring the flowers in pinks or purples, which would have been my "go-to" colors, I decided to make this a fall card and went with orangey-yellow flowers and a terra cotta color planter.  I am quite happy with how it turned out, so I guess it does pay to step outside of your comfort zone.

This card is for the following challenges: 
A Spoonful of Sugar - Sketch (love it and will be using it again)
Creative Belli - Fall or Thanksgiving with a Leaf
Gingersnap Creations - GS27 - Green, Brown, Orange
TCP Tuesday - Inspiration challenge - chose the colors

Hand Full of Stamps - Layers, layers, layers
By the Cute and Girly - Autumn Glory
