Falling for You - a CAS, vintage romantic card

Edit: This card won for the distressing  challenge #28
over Think Ink. Thank you!!

My 'lo's mojo' is in a slow motion, so I got to play a little with card making. I used the sketch from 365 cards:

 The minute I saw this sketch, I just knew I would take it with fall leaves. I used my new MS leaf stamp&punch, but only the punch. On the leaves I adhered some glitter. For the background, I stamped some green leaves. I made the flower from a doily and adhered a golden button on top. The sentiment (I almost wrote "the title"... LOL) is glitter rub-ons. A lot of distress ink on the card and that's it!
The weather here starts to change, and eventhough it is still quite hot during daytime, mornings and evenings are getting a little more cool.
There are already a few autumn's challenges, so I'm entering this card for these challenges (and some more...):
indian summer - btcag
lace & sparkle - #77 cinspirations
clean & simple - #15 paper romance;
handmade flower - #107 everybody art;

Thanks for stopping by!

כרטיס שהכנתי עם השראה של סתיו, עכשיו כשמזג האוויר קצת נהיה צונן (לפחות בבקרים ובערבים).
השתמשתי בפאנצ' עלים חדש של מרתה סטיוארט שקיבלתי במתנה, אבקת נצנצים זהובה, הרבה דיו דיסטרס, החתמה בדיו ירוק של עלים ברקע, אותיות של ראב-און, פרח ממפית תחרה וכפתור זהב.
אהבתי את משחק המילים באנגלית עם הנושא של שלכת.

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל!
