Indian Summer?

I've had this Summer cutie image, called Just Hanging Around, from Phindy's Place  for a while and not used it yet...  Decided it was time I coloured him in and chose to give him an Autumn makeover.  I took a liberty with the image and drew in some falling leaves.  We've had some lovely Autumn days but today it would be a bit chilly to go without a shirt:).  My colourscheme came from some gorgeous Memory Box papers that I bought at the Stamp Attic. The fibre ribbon is also from Stamp Attic.   I've coloured with Copics and Glossy Accents and tried out a pointillist style background.

Papertake Weekly has a Three of a Kind Challenge this week, to use things in threes and I thought it went really well with the 3 shape sketch from Card Patterns Challenge.  There are:  3 shapes, 3 rows of stitching, 3 Dew Drops, 3 distressed shapes.
