Jumping in the Leaves

Today I have another fall card to share with you.  This image of a girl jumping in the leaves from Broken Box Stock (a freebie!) to me is so joyful.  It is so much fun to rake a big pile of leaves together and then take turns jumping in and throwing them into the air!  It is so worth the work it entails.  For me with all my children, their sheer delight sparkling in their eyes makes it all worthwhile! It doesn't matter how old you are, you should at least send a few of your own leaves soaring into the fall winds.
I had fun distressing the edges and I added just a hint of sponged ink to around her legs just because of falling debree!  I also created a fringe on the ribbon to kinda make it look like the ends of a scarf.  You do need one with the chilly bite in the air!  Also to note, I used Prismacolor Pencil crayons to colour the image and then I used baby oil and blending sticks to finish it off.
