Hope everyone is having a great Friday!
Its time for another challenge over at Phindys Place and this week we would love to see all your autumn makes!  You dont have to use a Phindy Image but you get to enter the challenge twice if you do!!!!

For my card I used the fab Rainy Day Friend image!  Just love the little bird on top of the umbrella.
I coloured the image with copics.  The flower is something new that I tried with a Sizzix die and scraps.  Quite like the effect!  The sentiment is from Lili of the valley.
