Autumn Colours

It wasn't my turn to make a card for the Whoopsi Daisy Challenge this week but I couldn't resist colouring up this gorgeous image from sheet 184 and making a card.

The challenge this week is RIBBONS AND/OR LACE, we are also introducing a new element to the challenge - ANYTHING GOES WITH A WHOOPSI DAISY IMAGE - so if you use a WHOOPSI DAISY IMAGE you can enter any style of card or project you like - you don't have to follow the theme - so come on get out your WHOOPSI DAISY images and show us what you can do - there is usually a free image HERE.

I think the weather is getting quite autumnal at the moment, the days are lovely and sunny but the evenings are drawing in and the mornings are quite chilly first thing so I decided to make my card using autumn colours:

I have coloured my image with ProMarkers and the papers are My Mind's Eye - Bloom & Grow.  I used a Martha Stewart scalloped edge punch to add the scalloped detail at the bottom of my card and also the central border.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

Card Recipe:

Papers:  My Mind's Eye - Bloom & Grow
Card Stock:  Dies to Die For - Kraft
Tools:  Spellbinders - Large Scalloped Oval, Martha Stewart - Edge Punch
Docrafts - Leaf Punch
Embellishments:  ribbon, flowers, string and pearls from stash
Sentiment:  Docrafts - Wellington Collection

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
