Crafting for all Seasons #11 Fall Flowers/Pumpkins

It was lovely to see all your sunset/fall colours last time and we're sticking with a Fall theme this time too. Over at CFAS we'd like to see Fall Flowers and/or Pumpkins on your projects. We're being sponsored by Fred She Said and the DT got to chose an image to work with - I chose Pumpkin Bouquet:

This was a fabulous image to work with, I've coloured it with promarkers then cut it with a scalloped nestie circle and used some tea dye DI and peach ink to colour the background whilst it was still in the die. I've layered onto a larger purple scalloped circle. For the backing I've used grand nestie squares to cut out a layer in terracotta and one in peach which I've matted to the card base after tying a gingham ribbon around. Card is finished with Marianne Design corners, buttons, lilac flowers and a Prima butterfly.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to be inspired by my team mates creations, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
