Autumn card - Friends

Good day everyone,

Our theme for October is

Autumn or Halloween

In Canada our Thanksgiving is October 10th,

and sprayed with water.  Added foam sheet on back

Images are colored with copics, leafs are distressed
inks on a lighter weigh watercolour paper (much easier for punches)
