Happy Fall

I created this fall card using this adorable digi image from Elisabeth Bell called I Love You This Much.  The base of my card is hunter green. I cut a piece of tan card stock just a little smaller than the base. I added a rectangle of brown card stock down the side.  I cut a strip of brown striped paper that I found in my box of scraps and backed it in burgundy card stock.  I cut along the bottom of the burgundy using scalloped scissors.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I backed the image in mustard yellow card stock and then again in hunter green card stock.  The sentiment is printed out off the computer using the font Blackadder ITC.  I punched out the sentiment using a 1 3/8 inch circle punch, backed it in burgundy card stock and cut around it using scalloped scissors. I added a couple diecut leaves and 3 burgundy pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
