Autumn Colours

Good morning.  My card today is for International Art and Soul.  The theme is autumn colours, and I think I have cracked it with this card.

My Card
7" x 5" base card - Papermania
Bronze pearlescent card - Crafters Companion
White cardstock - Rymans
Sunflower image - Greeting Card Factory
Microbead and pearls - stash
I was very happy to be able to add some quotes to my card.  In fact I added so much text that I decided to not use too much in the way of embellishments.  I used microbeads for the centre of the sunflower and then some brown pearls in the corners.  The picture does not show the microbeads at their best.  There are three or four different shades in the pot and look gorgeous in real life.
I kept it all pretty flat by adding the image and the three different texts onto the one piece of card and just played around with the positioning.
I found the birthday quote online and told John it suited me perfectly - for some reason he just laughed! I think this card is for me since it is my birthday today ... lol!
Why not pop over to the blog and see what my teamies have come up with, and maybe join in the challenge?
Take care and enjoy your day.  We are off out for the day but I don't know where.  I quite like surprises though.
