Delicious Doodles Post! Cuteness!

For my Delicious Doodles post today I thought I would go for an autumn look this time round - so chose the gorgeous Dormouse image! 

I coloured the image with chalks and promarkers - I wanted a delicate look to it.

Then I made a frame out of some leaves cut on my ecraft machine.  These are on the fundamentals 1 cartridge.

Think I may have "overpowered" the little Dormouse a little, just not sure really whether I have achieved a good contrast or just got a little "brash" with the whole thing!
But nothing can take away from how cute the image is!

Have just realised I can link this up for Stamping Vacation - two challenges in fact - to use green and rust, and also to use any shaped frame but round or square!

Thanks for popping by!

I think it's gorgeous hun! Having the leaves as a frame adds a feeling of depth to it. The shading is lovely and soft too.
Hope you are doing well hun.
