Autumn/ Fall Days

It's definitely on it's way, Autumn that is. I even put on the central heating last night, the temperature just plummeted. I made this card for 3 challenges. I decided to stay with greens, browns and golds. Think it's turned out quite nice. I had an old pearl necklace which I had broken up a few months ago, so I used the beads to make a charm, I took the wire out of the attached ribbon and used that to attach it and wrapped it round a pretty little rose. The Butterflies are from spellbinders. I embossed them and using my brown and green chalk sticks I distressed them. The challenges I am entering are:

1. Our Creative Corner Challenge: The theme this week is Happy Fall Y'all, make a Fall/Autumn card.
2. La-La Land Crafts Challenge: The theme this week is to use at least 3 embellishments, I have used Ribbon, Rose, Pearls and buttons.
3. A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge: The theme this week is Fall into Autumn. They would like to see your take on Autumn.

Thank you so much for visiting, I do look forward to reading your comments and I appreciate your opinions very much.
