Autumn Wreath

I wanted to enter a couple of challenges that have caught my eye, so I've made a 'just for fun' card to share this afternoon.

It's also been a while since I made anything other than a Christmas card, so I've made it a birthday card instead.

I really love huge ribbons because I find wide ribbon makes better bows.  It's held on to my card by the brad, which is pushed through the backing paper before it is attached to the card base.  I find it works better than sticking the bow on with wet glue, especially where the bow is quite large.  That's why you'll see lots of these gorgeous brads on my cards.

Her face, adorable as it is, is taunting me. As if to say, "Yep, here it is...I dare you try and take it. It's that honory tongue sticking out like my daughter does when she's up to no good. Despite my 'flashback' I love your gorgeous card Annette!! The coloring is spot on and that frame is AWWWEEESOMME!
