Autumn - challenge #97...Let's Craft and Create

Happy Wednesday friends.
We are having a holiday here in South Africa today, being Heritage Day, and it is definitely not autumn here, but a gorgeous Spring day, warm and sunny with a lovely blue sky.

Well it may be Spring here, but the challenge today at Let's Craft and Create is Autumn. The DT have made lovely cards for inspiration, and I think anyone in the Northern parts of the world, will possibly be feeling the changes of the season.

This is my card.


I made my background paper by stamping leaves and colouring with Pan Pastels. I love this effect. Matted this onto dark brown cardstock.
The Sentiment was a freebie from Paulette at Create with TLC  Cut it out with Nellie Snellen MF dies
Added ribbon and a piece of daisy trim that I have had for ages, and thought the colours perfect for this card.
Pearls to finish.
