Cards for Men - Challenge 20 - "Autumn"

Good Morning Ladies I cannot believe that we have reached Challenge 20 already it just doesnt seem possible that we have, and I want to say a big thank all those fabulous people who took part in our last challenge we had over 60 entries and I want to wish many congratulations to the winners. For this fortnights Challenge we are being sponsered by "Crafts and Me" a new Sponser and we want to say many thanks to them as
they are giving us a really Wonderful prize this beautiful stamp by Sarah Burrier, I do so hope you will take part in this Challenge with a chance of winning it (wish I could), and the way to do that is to create a card with a "Autumn" theme.
This is what Crafts and Me say about themselves:-

"Crafts and Me has everything for the card maker, with a wide range of rubber stamps from around the world. Teresa has just introduced her own range of rubber stamps from three international artists Hannah Lynn, Molly Harrison and Sara Burrier"

And this is my DT Card for the Challenge:-
I have used this fabulous digi image from Mo Manning, and I coloured it with my copic pens then used Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut it out, I also used the same die to draw around to create the mount out of brown card. The sentiment is one of my stash ones by Inspirations, this was stamped onto a piece of white card, and with a small leaf spray stamped around the edge.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of brown card and one of three papers from the Nitwit Downlads, this set are called "Autumn Enchantment" the first paper is an all over pattern of leaf sprays on a cream/green base, the second is a brown paper with large and small leaves on, and the third is a plaid one these two are mounted on two pieces of brown card. I then positioned my mounted image in the middle, and the sentiment to the righthand side, with a piece of leaf ribbon attached to the left of it, this was stuck to the back of the first mount.
To finish of I have stuck several leaf buttons down the right hand side. I do so hope that you will take part in this challenge on http://cardsformen.blogspot.com/ and take a look and get inspiration from the fabulous cards that my fellow Design Team members have created.
