Autumnal Tag

The four prompts for October over on Tag It Tuesday are 1: Use scrapbook paper; 2: Add a map; 3: Fall/Autumn and 4: Nature.  I have used all four in one way or another.
As always, I worked on a #8 manilla tag.  Prompt 1: I used a piece of 6" x 6" paper from the Autumn Morning paper collection (Sara Davies Signature Collection).  I do have the 12" x 12" version of the pad, but felt that the images would be too large for the size of tag I was working on.  This was glued on level with the bottom of the tag, sealed, dried and trimmed.
Prompt 2: Add a map.  I used one of the postcard sized cards from the Cartography collection by IndigoBlu and trimmed off part of the map, as well as the label at the bottom of the card.  These were added to the tag, sealed, dried and trimmed.
Faber-Castell big brush markers in Terracotta and Caput Mortuum were blended along the edges.
Prompt 3: Fall/Autumn.  The colours and the leaves fit this prompt.  Prompt 4: Nature.  I masked off part of the autumn mini stencil from Tim Holtz (THMS060) and dragged both Copper and Gold Dreamweaver embossing paste through the remaining apertures.
I decided to leave the tag there rather than including any further sentiment, as I didn't want to add any black or white elements. I am also entering this into the current Autumn/Halloween challenge over on Tag Tuesday as well as the Plant-astic challenge on Country View Challenges as there are so many leaves on there.
