Shawna with Latte. Autumn/Fall inspiration card.

Hello and Happy Day to you all from the UK on this lovely sunny (but chilly) Autumn Day.
I hope this finds you well as the year is winding round and Autumn is arriving in all its glory.

My card for today has been inspired by the warm and cosy colours of Autumn/Fall and I hope you like it.

List of Materials used to make this card:

Wonderful Digital Stamp Shawna with Latte from MayzyArt coloured with a mixture of Promarker and Copic Marker Pens.  
Card base is approx 7" x 7" but card measures just under 8" x 8" with embellishments.
Lovely K and Co design Papers, Orange glitter papers for mats.  Kaisercraft design details.
Ribbons are brown and gold from my stash.
Lots of lovely die cuts:
 Spellbinder dies for mount.
On the Edge Tim Holtz die for fence edging.  
Roses cut by me from a Big Shot Die.
Leaves are Tim Holtz - Tattered Leaves.
Catalina wreaths x 2.
Lots of distress inks and detail in shades of brown, gold, orange and green.
Butterfly Washi Tape from Marianne Designs.

A closer view of this lovely image to show colouring detail and design.

Sneak peak of vintage style label.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: - Bingo - Yellow, ribbon, flower.

A closer view of the label with matching image.  Mounted on a label with Marianne Designs Butterfly tape distressed with orange ink.  I have added a stamped and foiled butterfly behind the image for detail - gilding flakes on Versamark Ink has been used.  Further ribbon and die    cut rose to decorate.

This has taken hours to make and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.  Your support and comments are always appreciated and most gratefully received.

Sending warmest wishes to you all.
