I don't really know if this is Autumn themed but it does have fall colors.  The stamp and embossing folder are from another Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, I did get another subscription so you will probably be seeing more, plus I bought more at the yard sale at my stamp store.

I decided to use my sparkle markers on this one, Fairies have to sparkle, right? I also used it on the embossing folder to highlight the centers of the flowers, the tag came from another set but thought it worked well with this.

I took a few side shots to try and show the sparkle and this one seemed to be the best of them, the ink on the dress smeared a little bit.

Have you tried the new sparkle pens, I see Nuvo has their own sparkle pens now too, oh my.

I am linking this card with Sisterhood of Crafters, Let the sparkle fly challenge.

Hope your week is off to a good start.
I appreciate the time you take out to stop by and say Hi :)

This is so pretty! I can’t believe that is a freebie stamp with your magazine! I would love to subscribe to that one again. Lovely lovely colors, and I think the sparkle markers were the right choice!

Beautiful fall colors for your fairy scene and you colored it perfectly! Yes, there has to be sparkle on a fairy. I love my watercolor sparkle pens. I'll have to look at the Nuvo pens, check out their colors. You get the most wonderful things in that magazine. It's fun that your local stamp store has yard sales, too.
