Autumn Tumble

Ok so yes I wasn't well today... it's a good thing that I crafted a lot on previous days...  I'm here to finally blog a little card that I made with some fabulous inspiration from this picture from a great challenge called Pinspirational challenges they always have some fabulous pictures to inspire us!  And I will share at the bottom of the post the picture.

I also wanted to play with the House Mouse fall challenge!  So this was the perfect opportunity to pull out the great stamp from Joanna Sheen Autumn Tumble JSHM020.  I've been promising myself to use my stamps more!  I seem to really neglect them.  And since I really loooove the house mouse well this is the perfect opportunity.

The paper is from Simple stories - Documented.  I decided to go monochrome because the picture was pretty monochrome as well.  I used the large square, the fleur de lis square as well as the fancy tag 2 all from Spellbinder.  I used a ribbon from my stash.  I distressed all the edge of the paper with my Tim Holtz distresser.  I also used the fabulous rose dies from Joanna Sheen signature series for the leaves of the roses.  I'm addicted to those dies... and there are some new ones... that I ordered of course!!!  The wonderful flowers are from Wild orchid and I added 2 little pearls to the sentiment.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics and to which I added some Pebbles chalk - Classic Earth as well as Pearlescent.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC and I thought it was perfect for this.
I followed this great picture:
