An Autumn Bouquet

Afternoon Folks!
This is a very rare event - 3 posts in 3 days! 
Just thought I would share a card I made this week using a very cute Penny Black Kitty stamp called You're the Bestest. I think this is probably my last autumnal card of the year, I really should be getting on with a few more Christmas cards, but I wanted a change from snow!! This also tidied up a few more scraps of paper that were left on my desk from previous projects. The papers are MME freebies from a magazine published about 7 years ago - they finally made it on to a card! The sentiment is a rub on, at one time they were in every craft shop but they seem to have gone out of fashion. I love them because they are perfect for adding after you have coloured the image - I am the disorganised crafter who doesn't always plan which sentiment to use in advance. These are far less risky than trying to stamp a sentiment!

The flowers are by Prima and the ribbon is from poundland with a ready made bow from my stash coloured to match it with a promarker. Here's a closer look:
