Time pressures bite again. I was waiting for today's sketch before making my card for this week's MMTPT challenge. I had to change the stamp I'd planned to use, but not the set :D.
No Northern Loons here, but I added a flight of birds into my autumnal scene. Last time I visited my aunt the trees were still all green - today I'm hoping to to see a view a little more like this.
(I found a second ladybird with open wings after I'd taken the photo, so I've added it above the sentiment, but I'm just heading out and don't have time for another photo just now).
5 3/4" square base. Top paper is BG Euphoria, bottom paper is BoBunny Autumn Song.
Lovely as a Tree inked with markers, stamped, and some extra colour and background sponged in. I added a little Flower Soft for some fallen leaves.
The underneath square was a scrap of embossed card which I cut into a square and sponged with Frayed Burlap.
Unknown bird stamp, sentiment from Verve.
The little leaf was on my desk from another project, and the ladybird dies are from Elizabeth Crafts. Squares, leaf and the second ladybird all popped up on foam.

Beautiful autumn tree, Sabrina! Love the fallen leaves, and your birds flying south for the winter makes the scene more realistic! And don't we find ladybugs under leaves and in places we least expect~
