A Card for two Challenges

Good Afternoon Ladies, well we had one heavy frost this morning and hubby says its still quite cold outside, and Im in a rush because we are of swimming in 35 mins so Id better pull my finger out and get a move on. This card is for two challenges Mos "Colours of Fall" and Cute Card Thursdays "Sketch by Lynn" and Ive used this cute image by Mo of Kia playing with the leaves, and coloured her with my copic pens, after which Ive cut her out with my square nestabilitie die and used the Lacey Square one for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x  7" white card with a first layer of brown card and three papers from the Nitwit Downloads this set are called "Autumn Enchantment" and the first paper is an all over leaf and nut pattern, the two papers Ive used for the squares under my mount are of a brown and beige check and Ive used them alternatively, and on top positioned my mounted image in the centre. The sentiment is one that I found in my stash and this has been mounted on one of the double ended tags from Spellbinders.
To finish of I have punched some corners with my Martha Stewart Leaf punch and cut them out to create the corner pieces and then I was given these gorgeous metal leaf brads from someone in the US and Ive scattered them all over my card to give the impression of falling leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
