Autumn is here!

It is! Leaves are falling off the trees and making a mess of my garden. Already been conker collecting and came back with a huge bag that I'll put out for the squirrels to eat. Charlie loves to watch them in the garden :-) It put me in the mood for a nice Autumnal card. This is for Paul's Dad cos it's his birthday next week.
It's a Penny black image - love those little faces! I've coloured it with my promarkers and used papermania inspirations papers and a foam swirl stamp - not overly sure if I like it though.... What do you think? I added a bit of gold ribbon and glitter glue for a little bit of sparkle. And then there's the "Dad" embellishment I got from Debs - thankyou! I followed a sketch from Cupcake Craft Challenges but it's supposed to be a circle in the middle - hope this is ok...?
It fits challenges from A Spoon Full of Sugar (Fall into Autumn colours), Pollycraft Monday Challenge (Autumn colours) and The Creative Cottage (Birthday boy).
Have a fab day!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
