I've got that Autumn feeling......

So this evening I had my craft class, it'll be around 6yrs since this group started. Though only small, it's very friendly. 
After class, I got on with card for today (evening)  I've used Johnathon Lockwood's Autumn range of stamps, which I fell in love With, as soon as I'd seen them on tv. 
Today I've used the pixie powders again, starting to become a favourite product of mine....colours used are plum twist, lava red and rich gold. I spinkled the powder onto my card and spritzed with water, and took a 2nd piece to get a print. I've then used Johns falling leaves background stamp, with flitter flake glue and copper flakes to create my coloured background. 
I also used Johns Autumn wreath elements stamps, to stamp my wreath, the happy birthday and the extra leaves added as embellishments. 
I used black archival ink to stamp my images and cut out by hand. I used a banner from the frames and tags range, and stamped my happy birthday. 
I Matt and layered using foundation rich plum card, and finished the card off with a plum ribbon bow.
