PanPastel Challenge 3 "Autumn Colours"

Good Evening everyone..

Its that time again :-) Time for the next PanPastel Challenge... If you fancy taking part, jump over on to the challenge blog here:

The winner of the challenge will get a £5 online voucher to "your creativity store"

This week its Autumn colours. Im an autumn child, and its my favorite time of the year, so this was a lovely challenge for me. I had loads if fun making this wee card as the Panpastels are just perfect for blending together.

What I did:

I painted strait on to the card blank. As the card is cream I just sponged on Permanent Red and blended with a small bit of Raw Umber and a touch of Titanium White. In the end I added a wee bit of the raw umber around the edges. I glossed the whole card with decoupage gloss and left to dry.
I then stamped the flower bits and sponged in the same way, glossed and left to dry.
When everything was dry I added the gold Mirri card and layered with the brown paper.
I then put the flower together, added the brad in the middle and stuck to my card. I punched a few leaves and stuck under the flower.
I then added the greeting and the candy in the corner and drew the faux stitches. 
  As a last little touch, I took a sanding block and distressed the edges of the card to reveal the cream card underneath.

What i used:
Cream card blank
Permanent red, Raw Umber and Titanium white PanPastels
"Build a flower, poppy" from Docrafts
Gold Mirri card
"Woodland" paper from Docrafts
Candy, Greeting, Brad Leaf punch and brown pen

Im looking forward to see what you all make for this challenge. Hope you all like my wee card, and THANK YOU for any comments.
