The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - 15 September 2011

Well we had a WONDERFUL array of entries to the Crafty Purple Frog Challenge.  Make sure you so and have a look at the winners.  The challenge for this fortnight is "fall into fall" ie autumn colours/leaves etc.
For my card I have used the Crafty Purple Frog image called the "Perfect Pumpkin".  I have used the decoupage version but there is also a pyromage/invertage sheet as well.  The backing papers are from K&Co, DCWV and the gorgeous brown Steampunk-style sheet is from a Prima pad.  I was so sad to use it but I thought it worked well for the card so I had to take a deep breath and put double-sided tape on it!!  I have embossed a piece of DCWV card to add some texture.  The card is finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment, 3 X-cut leaf punches used to punch out leaves from the backing papers/card used and flowers with a brad centre.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
