Duntroon's Autumn ...on a card

At last I managed to finish my card for the Guest call over at Tickled Pink Stamps.
Below is the sketch for this challenge.
I decided to use my all time favorite paper for this one, hence part of the reason my card has been so long in the favorite paper is hand made rusty paper. The 'recipe' to make this was given to me by my crafty friend Kristi. You can find the instructions on my blog HERE ...Click on the sixth photo down in that post to enlarge the image, that way you will be able to read the instructions.

I had a play around with the sketch and turned the required elements around, just a little bit!

I decided to cut out my image ,called Pinkettes Pippa, she is a new release over at Tickled Pink Stamps, and place her onto perspex which I backed with tulle. This way I could avoid covering up my rusty paper too much.

 I wanted my card to reflect the autumn colours that are all around us here in Duntroon at the moment. So behind the perspex rectangle I have an embossed image of wintry looking trees and I have added white lace to image the snow that is on our surrounding hills. I still have some bright yellow daisies in my garden, so I have added them to my card as well...well added some fabric daisies that look pretty much like the real thing.

.... without any more woffle here is the inside .

Thank you once again for popping by.
Good luck to everyone who has entered the Guest Challenge ( I will be needing loads of luck, and a miracle to get anywhere with this one!) Check out the gorgeous entries here at the bottom of the post.

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
