Card For Alison

Helloooo!  I know you probably think I'm not blogging, but October was mostly involved with blogging about our holiday in Paris here http://artsafantasy.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/paris-again-part-4.html Things around here seem to be becoming very french indeed.  I am actually having french lessons and it seems to be taking over my life!  I'm really enjoying it, though.
Anyway, my challenge to the card swap group for October was to make an autumn-themed card.  This is what I made for Alison:
I used the Tape It stamp set again because I love it and find it so versatile.  The card base is the retired More Mustard colour, but I've still got loads of it left.  The ink spots are from French Foliage, which I stamped in More Mustard, and Cajun Craze on the white background.
Once again I stamped the Tape It stamps onto spare white cardstock and cut them out, but there's no reason why you couldn't stamp directly onto the card base.  I stuck them all down so they overlapped slightly on the right hand side, then trimmed them flush with the card base. 
I cut the leaf out with my Sizzix set, which I love, then ran it through the square lattice ef (still a firm favourite) before attaching to the card, just with a sticky dot and nothing else.  I added a button, which I'd threaded with linen thread. 
I love autumn and I love making autumn cards, don't you?
Thanks for looking.
