Remarkable - thats what you are...

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I have been itching to get crafty and I found time last night to get a card made.
I have had this vision for this card for a week, so it was nice to get the idea put into action.
Anyhoo without further ado, here is my card which I am entering into the following challenges:
1.Stamping Sensations Challenge - Ocyober - Autumn colours
2.Penny Black @ Allsorts Challenge - October - Warm Autumn Colours
3Justrite Friday Challenge - 128 - Back to nature
4.My Time To Craft Challenge - 306 - Autumnal colours
6.Petal Lu Challenge - Anything goes
7.Allsorts Challenge - 333 - All sentimental
8.Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - 150 - Autumn colours
9.Whimsy Inspires Challenge - 87 - Fall colours or xmas
10.As You Like It Challenge - Fav brights or pastels and why ...... No contest here ladies, it has to be bright rich colours, especially autumnal colours.Reminds me of crisp mornings, crunchy leaves, warm jumpers and boots and a big mug of hot chocolate and a good book.....bliss

Products used are:
Brown card
Kraft tag
Mix of papers
Brown ribbon
Hessian ribbon
Wooden hearts
Gold mica spray
Bronze swirl
Cosmic shimmer ink
Sizzix leaves dies
Mix of flowers
JUSTRITE sentiment stamp
A close up of the main bit, the colours are so much more richer irl.

The sentiment, I love Justrite stamps, they are so unique.
And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by and I do apologise for been such a rubbish blogger.
Hugs Nic.
