Thanksgiving or Autumn with JIC

Hi there and welcome to another Just Inspirational Challenges monthly Challenge #3

The Theme is thanksgiving/ autumn and i decided to go with Autumn as we don't do thanksgiving in the UK.

I was lucky enough to find in my stash of digi's a lovely digi called Bundled Brigette from simply Betty Stamps she is so cute and just like here we are definitely feeling the autumnal weather.

 I started by distressing the image edges with the darker rusty hinge and then brought it in lighter with Wild honey (Tim Holtz distress pads)i thought it would go really well with that autumnal look....brrrrr. 

I used a memory box die called Riviera corner  for the flourish made out of a piece of card from my stash.

The papers i used for matting and layering were from My Minds Eye  Street Market and a handmade paper from stash. and a 8x8 card blank. Added a piece of lace and last but not least a lovely paper flower!

I love the  autumnal poem called "Autumn of Fires" by Robert Louis Stevenson.  So i added that as my sentiment,

I did muck up though i cant tell you the copic colours this week as i cant find my recipe list! And just realized its a horrible photo! but the weather is very dull here at the moment.

I am going to enter this card in  the following challenges:
