Forever Autumn Gorjuss Girl

This project was inspired by the challenge title at CES Challenge Blog, the sketch at Fairymoon Crafts and the stitching theme at Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 33.
I used My Minds Eye 'Bloom and grow' papers, a gorjuss girl stamped image coloured in promarkers on a scalloped circle cut with nestibilities die, punched leaves and brown backing paper. I also used a gold metallic pen and gold gems.
I started by backing the mme papers onto the brown paper and leaving a little border around, I then mounted the nestie shape onto the backing paper to match. I then followed the sketch at Fairymoon Crafts for the layout. I added the leaves and gems to embellish, then drew stitch marks around the borders, but only a little stitch in each corner of the main image backing paper.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
