Fall Sheltering Tree

Hi everyone! I wanted to show you this picture first because it shows my favorite part of this whole card!
This Kinkade tree is meant to be more of a spring time purple color (according to the label) but today I felt the fall breeze in the air and went with a fall theme. I love the harvest reds that we see out here in BC!
One other little touch that you might not see in the large photo is that after coloring my images with my copic markers I went over this tree with the clear spica glitter pen by copic as well. The tree just SHIMMERS!
Here is the full card, it is for today's sketch challenge on SCS. Here are the complete card deets:
