Fall Greetings in a Suitcase

Hello Copic friends!
Today this is me, Kathrin, sharing a new creation with you - and of course it had to be fall-ish.
So when I came across this cute digi image by Mo Manning I just had to buy it:

I barely use my orange markers but for this image I used a lot of them!
It was so much fun coloring this image. I wasn't sure how to make the leave-wings first but then I decided to go with a mix of light colors, anything from orange and yellow to green and brown.
I colored the leaves randomly using all the colors listed and then used the lightest color to blend it all together a bit.

The image is put on a suitcase:

I kept it white to make the image and decorations pop. 
I added some lace and ribbon and also a punched out leave. For some highlights I used golden embossing powder on the corners and the leave.

I went with these markers to color the image:

Skin: E13, E11, E51, E30, E000
Cheeks: R20, R22
Hair: E99, YR24, Y21, Y000
Pumpkin: YR12, YR15, YR16, YR18, YR00, Y11, Y15, Y35
Leave-Wings: E84, E81, E50, E31, YG91, YR31, YR00
Trousers: E47, E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Vest: E09, E07, R05, R02
Ribbon around the leg: YG99, YG97, YG95, YG93
Shadow: BG70, BG90

So, I am wishing all of you a sunny fall day!
