My second card with the new Aurora Wings Images

Ive been trying to get this card made and posted for the last two days, but even though I had the image coloured I just wasnt sure how to show it, so I hope this layout is ok with you, as its a rectangle image and not easy to show. The image is called "Acorn Sprite riding a Red Squirrel" and I have printed it onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour it, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Rectangle 5"x 7" die to cut it out and a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of orange card and the papers are from Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads "Pumpkins and Spice" paper set, the first a cream background with falling leaves, and the second is a brown one with spots on and the third is yet again the same leaves with a dark brown background behind it. These two have been cut in squares and then I have used the Martha Stewart Falling Leaf border and corner punches. Afterwards I placed my mounted image in the center towards the top and the sentiment below.
The sentiment is one I googled and this was printed onto a piece of white card and mounted on some orange card. And to finish of I have used some large leaf buttons and stuck them along the top and bottom of my card.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
