Paper Nest Dolls 'Fall' Challenge

Hello my friends!  It's time for another Paper Nest Dolls challenge.  The theme for PNDC #13 is 'Fall' Challenge.  The challenge begins today, 9/16 and ends on Friday 9/27.

What's a challenge without prizes  - there are 4 winners in total for each challenge - 3 winners chosen by our design team and these winners get one free PND digi of their choice (which let me tell you will be hard to pick since all the images are so darn adorable) - and 1 randomly chosen winner who will receive this awesome prize package.  This prize package is special because it's the first time Christine has included a rubber stamp.  Just a note to the winner - you can pick any of her fall themed stamps - it doesn't have to be the one pictured below (although it is pretty cute)!
Christine, the owner and illustrator of the Paper Nest Dolls has some wonderful images for Fall but I had something else in mind.  I used her image called 'Give Thanks Ellie'.  I had pictured in my mind that I wanted to show a tree with lots of fall colored leaves.  So I cut some brown cardstock into a tree shape and then punched out a TON of leaves using many different fall colors.  I love that Ellie is dressed in her little Indian dress and while this would be a perfect image for Thanksgiving I thought I could use her for Fall as well.  I think they call that creative license. 

She is colored with COPIC markers and then fussy cut - I used foam adhesive to pop her up to give her dimension.  The 'Welcome Fall' sentiment is made using Tim Holtz label letters.  

Here's a close up of Ellie
