One Sweet Challenge - September 2013

It is time for another challenge over at the One Sweet Challenge.  The topic this month is "brown, yellow, orange and red colours".
For my card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Karen Middleton called "Art Nouveau Two".  This is available as a digital stamp here.  
I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo distress ink.  I have then put some mica in a spray bottle with some water and sprayed over the image to give a mottled effect to the background.  All the backing papers I have been given but they are in tones of yellow, brown, orange and red.  I have used Vintage Photo, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade distress inks to flowers die-cut from a book.  The layers which I have scrunched up and have been held together with a brad.  The card has been finished off with some mesh ribbon, fabric leaves, buttons and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
