Autumnal Card

Hi Everyone

Today I would like to share a very autumnal feeling card I made.

I created my card my using distress inks in the following colours on my background: Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick.  I then used the same colours to stamp the background tape measure stamp from DoCrafts.  Next I added the crackle stamp by IndigoBlu.  The letters and numbers are by Paperartsy and were stamped in Spiced Marmalade.  Next I used black archival to stamp the flower, hand and sentiment all from Paperartsy.  I coloured the flower using slightly watered down Smoked Paprika Fresco Finish paint and the hand was done in the same way but with Snowflake paint.  I flicked water at the card and blotted to create some more interest on the background too.
Finally I matted the piece onto brown cardstock before attaching to a 8x8 card blank.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
