Very Orange Thanks

Hiya everybody,

It has been a tad wet here today - but this has meant that I have not felt guilty for not going down to the allotment. We have been working on the conservatory roof, and I know my arms are going to hurt tomorrow - but it will be worth it when it is finished :)

Anyhow, here is my card that I managed to make today:
A hallowe'en patterned striped paper was layered onto a splatter orange and black paper. An autumn coloured stripy ribbon wraps around this panel, and then panel was then adhered to the orange base card. A die-cut black panel was used to make the main images of autumn leaves really stand out. To finish a tag was edged with orange ink and THANKS added in orange letters, and embellished with orange feathers, and diamantes were added down the left side of the base panel.

This is based on the following sketch from sweet sketch wednesday 2:
