Autumn flower

It's quite a coincidence that the new challenge at Craft Room Challenge is "Seasonal colours" because I already had all the elements of this card sitting on my work table this morning, where I'd left them last night in the hope that an inspiration particle would strike me overnight after several failed attempts to arrange them into a layout that pleased me. I'd been playing around with dies yesterday, to make a card for Make My Monday, and these elements were the result of some of my playing.

Then lying awake at 4am, as you do, I remembered a pack of card blanks I'd bought years ago that turned out to be far too flimsy to actually make into cards, but I loved the colours and textures of the paper (I won't give it the honour of being called card) so much that I couldn't bear to part with them. Why not cut one up and use it as a background? So that's where the lovely, slightly textured coppery brown background comes from.
