Autumn Birthday Boy

Hi all I have been trying to finish this card for several days and finally managed it today I am going to enter this one into the following challenges which are as follows:
I was fortunate enough to purchase from E-Bay a Limited Edition H&S Stamp set and finally chose to use one of the images. I coloured him with a mixture of Copics and promarkers, I used Earth coloured chalks to distress around the image then mounted him onto orange card.
I used a mixture of papers and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz tool then highlighted with green Versamagic ink.
I added some green web type ribbon topped with green gingham, I added a bow, a button with brown grosgrain ribbon, the sentiment is also one of my new sets they are the greetings stamp set from Bunny Zoe's and is from the Whimsy range created by Ann Vento.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I would also like to let you know that the Sir Stampalot October challenge is also about Autumn, Buttons and Bows. There are many challenges around wanting this recipe so why not go check out Sir Stampalot, this month's prize is phenomenal and you could be the lucky winner, just check out the rules and have ago. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I also wanted to thank each and everyone of you, my friends, for leaving me such wonderful messages to my post dated 8th October.  I was overwhelmed by your kindness, caring and support.
I spent a long time just reading them again and again and again I thought that if I could imprint your words into my mind it would give me hope for my future in the land of blog.
I will take each day as it comes and hope and pray that it will work out for the best I just want to tell you that I am so lucky to have such wonderful people as my friends.
Hugs to you all.
