SFC4213 - Squigglefly Challenge

It's MONDAY (again ... LOL!) and that means time for another challenge at Squigglefly.
Today's theme is:

"LEAVE" me be . . .
(use leaves or tree/leaves, fall/autumn theme OR
a card/project showing travel [leaving town])

Well, I obviously decided to go with the Fall theme ...
This fun digi image is called 'Halloween Circle' by Judith Hart.
There are leaves in my background paper (sorry it's from my scrap bin and didn't have the mfg name on it) ... plus I made leaves using Sizzix 'Branch w/Leaves' and 'Branch w/Leaves#2' dies for my cut out leaves.  They were also cut from a piece of scrap hunter green cardstock which I then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mists 'heirloom gold'.  While still damp, I formed each leaf by holding it with my tweezers down through the center and pinching the sides of the leaf together into the center.  Spectrum Noir alcohol markers were used to color the image.

A few additional challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody #31 - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges #68 - Halloween
Eclectic Ellapu - Halloween
Glitter n Sparkle #55 - Halloween
Robyn's Fetish Challenge #182 - Fall

I hope you'll come join in our "LEAVE ME BE..." fun!

As always . . .
