Autumn colours at HMFMC

Good morning my friends, hope the week ahead proves to be a good one for you all. My card today is my penultimate GDT creation for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge...the theme this fortnight is 'Autumn/Fall Colours'. I am lucky enough to live less than 5 minutes walk from a small woodland area and this year the colours of the turning leaves are just amazing! We've also been very fortunate with the weather, mainly warm and sunny...with bright blue skies and I've tried to use some of these colours in my card.
The card base is a simple tent fold with rounded corners I cut out the middle section to show the beautiful blue sky inside, complete with die cut clouds. I stamped the cute mousie with his parachute leaf onto a separate piece of card, coloured with copics , then fussy cut. I stamped the tips of the leaf again onto the main body of the card then matched the cut out image to bridge the gap. The  wooden sentiment is coloured with copics.
I'm having a great time guest designing for this lovely challenge, please click here to enjoy the wonderful creations from the Mousie Girls and for details of the fantastic prizes on offer!
Thanks for calling by today, hope you have a good week.

Pretty card, Chris. I love the way that you cut out the middle to show off the inside. It's all colored very nicely. I so wish we had some of those fall colors you are enjoying. I would love to live that close to the woods to be able to see the leaves. Thank you for being our guest designer. [Bunny]

Ooooh, Chris! I love your HM design. Being a GDT member on this team would be my dream! Congratulations to you, and well deserved with your many awesome cards. I love this one with the acetate clear window and gorgeous windy sky in the background. We still have not entered Fall here. I wonder if the climate change has permanently changed our area from subtropical to tropical? The humidity and heat are almost like summer in the upper 80s and low 90s, STILL it's not snow, and it truly is lovely. But your card makes me remember the times my girl friend and I walked through the woods to one another's homes. It's wonderful! hugs, de
