Mo Mannings Challenge - Wood or Would

Morning Ladies, todays card has been created for Mo's Challenge this week "Wood or Would", I think this for me has been extremely challenging one and I felt this was a very appropriate image but didnt really lend itself to making a card with, but Im hoping by fudging this sentiment it might just make it.
Ive used Mo's Red Riding Hood image and have printed it out onto white card and coloured it again with my copic pens, after which Ive mounted it onto a piece of brown card and then onto a embossed mirri board. The sentiment was mounted in the same way.
The base card is another of my infamous 8"x 8" white cards with a first layer of embossed silver mirri board and a first layer of brown card, with a printed a wood paper and then punched out the corners with my maple leaf corner punch, on top of this I have layered up two layers of leaf papers and have punched all around with the same maple leaf punch and used the border one as well, these were then mounted on top of one another and the a piece of brown and gold organza ribbon was stuck across the centre and attached at the back.
The mounted image was then stuck in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of I have created two flowers from some packet ones and a sparkly brad was threaded through the centres, and before sticking them to my card, Ive arranged some punched out brown leaves on my card and popped the flowers on top.

Hello Nanniflash, your kart you have well designed. The way I've let me translate it, it should be something with wood. The colors are class and the leaves too.
You can pick up something to you on my blog.
