Autumn Colours again

I just love the colours of Autumn - they blend together so well.
For this card I have printed a digi quote on to a mottled card and sponged the edge with distress ink. I have punched out the flowers and leaves, and ran the darker flowers through my cuttlebug to give a texture. The two green flourishes were also cut with the c/b. I hope you like it.

I quickly made this card after work today and quite pleased with how it has turned out. I printed the vintage image to layer on to the rest of the elements. I am entering in

Teddy Bear Time

My scanner has not behaved very well with the colour of the bear - his face is not as dark IRL.
I printed him from a CD and coloured with copics and water-colour pencils. Finished off with a gingham bow and some wee mauve flowers.
