autumn dreams

Good morning to you all in blogland. I hope you are fit and well and ready for a new day! This is my last day of 'freedom' before the school holidays begin - so should I be a bit quiet next week you'll know what's taking my time up!!!!

I've made today's card using an image called Gardenia  by Mitzi-SatoWiuff from the scrapbook stamp society. You can get the image here. I think she's another stunner - and I've got a few more to colour up over the holidays so I'm looking forward to making them into cards too and sharing them here.

So the image is coloured with promarkers and I've added liquid pearls as the bubbles. I've used some ribbon and charms that I got from the win on the housemouse bloghop and the sentiment I think is kanban. The papers were freebies in a stack from cardmaking and papercraft - they were raspberry road papers I think.I've used some brown and gold papers also and folded them to create a teabag style rosette too. 

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
