Autumnal Colours

Hi! There seem to be lots of lovely Autumn colours around at the moment, and a fair few Autumn challenges! I've had a go at some Autumn cards, using Sweet Pea stamps.

Here's one I made for the Sweet Pea Stampers 'Fall Colors' challenge:
Note: 'Fall Colors' is American for 'Autumnal Colours'  ;-)
I coloured with promarkers, and used stickles on her wings. The punched flowers have gold liquid pearls for centres. The backing paper is from the DCWV Once Upon A Time stack.

Here's a card I made with another Sweet Pea stamp. I'm entering this in the Scrapbook Sisters 'Autumn Colours' challenge:
I'm not sure the midnight blue background really works with the Autumn colours, but I wasn't sure how else to portray a night sky! Maybe I should've tried to make it a sunset!

I tried again with this stamp, and used a lighter sky colour. I'm entering this in the 4 Crafty Chicks 'Fall / Autumn' challenge:
