A new Challenge at Dream Valley

Good Morning lovely friends.

Today see the start of a new challenge over at Dream Valley.   The challenge is being sponsored by The Paper Shelter and there is a $20 voucher up for grabs. The theme is Autumn.
I have for the first time made a CAS card. I don't know why but I get a bit nervous about CAS but I have to say I really like this card and I may have to do another. I have used the gorgeous Sassy Cheryl image "Autumn Leaves".
The papers are from my stash. I know they are from K & Co but I have no idea what the papers are called.
I have coloured her in with Pro Markers.
Reds - Berry red, Crimson, Burgundy
Oranges - Pumpkin, Amber, Honeycomb, Gold
Greens - Pear Green, Lime Zest
Skin - Apricot, Dusky Pink
The hair was coloured with Copics
E11, E15, E18, E23,
I stamped and cut out the leaves from a Stamps Happen, Inc stamp called Fall Leaves.
They are coloured with Adirondack Dye Felt Pads.
Thank you all for your lovely comments regarding Kayleigh. She is still intermittently having contractions. She was back in hospital on Monday but out again on Wednesday.  If the baby (Evie) hangs in there for another couple of weeks it may make all the difference to her chances of survival. They say she has a strong heartbeat and she has had steroid injections to strengthen her lungs so fingers crossed.
 I am entering this card into the following challenges.
All that Stickles - Fall/Autumn
Sugar Creek Hollow - Fall is in the Air
Di's Digi Design - Fabulous Fall Colours 
CASual Fridays - colour pallet and at least 1 leaf
An Inky Situation - Fall leaves
Fab n funky - Leaves
Daring Cardmakers - Harvest Festival
Milk, Coffee Challenge - Fabulous Fall Colours
Lexi's Creations - Autumn colours
Inspired by Stamping - Fall/Autumn (Leaves are stamped and cut out)
Designs by Lisa Somerville  - Welcome Fall
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I will catch up with you all soon.
