Crafty Calendar Challenges DT card

This is my first DT card for Crafty Calendar Challenges and I'm very happy to be a part of the action!
This new challenge starts today and runs on the 1st Friday of each month with a new challenge based on the month's theme. This month's theme is "Autumn" with the optional extra of adding vegetation or plants.
As it is my Mum's birthday I thought I'd make the DT card for this event!
I hand cut the letter templates on papers from My Mind's Eye..(they are just fantastic for Autumn) and popped them up on foam pads.

The stamp is from my own range A Passion for Stamps and is called "Kitten at wall" but actually he can be "kitten at 'anything you like!'

The colouring is done with Promarkers and I've used various Woodware punches for Flowers,leaves butterflies etc. The fronds were sent to me by Tara and I didn't really want to part with them but the card IS for my mum!
I'm also entering this card for the Allsorts challenge as it fits in with their "Autumn Days" theme this week,too.
Please do join us at Crafty Calendar Challenges as we'd love to see your creations!
