Autumn or Autumn Festival at Crafty Cardmakers

Hi All
I hope that you have had a good Monday.
We see the start of a new challenge today over at Crafty Cardmakers.
Josephine is our Host this time and she is looking for Autumn or Autumn Festivals - NOT Halloween. 
She says 'There are always so many Halloween challenges around! So instead of creating a Hallowe'en card I would like to see something that depicts the season of Autumn, or maybe Harvest Festival, Guy Fawkes, Diwali or some other festival that happens in the Autumn. If your theme is a lesser-known festival, please tell us about it in your post! But remember, this is not a Halloween challenge, any Halloween entries will be deleted!
We have a new sponsor this time Milk coffee Digital Stamps with a prize of 5 digital stamps.

 I seem to be going through a Cute phase at the moment, and this card is no exception.
I created a scene using 2 of my Magnolia stamps, Edwin with Broom and Tilda in the Leaves that I bought from SirStampalot.
I layered them onto a panel cut out using a Nestability and stamped with a Magnolia swirl stamp.
I also added Fall Corner Foreground to the corner. All of the images have been coloured using Distress inks
The greeting comes from a clear stamp set that I found amongst my stash.
The background paper is also from my stash and reminds me of Autumn and playing in the piles of leaves that we swept up on the lawn as a child.
Why not check out the challenge HERE and see what the rest of our lovely team have come up with to inspire you.
Happy Crafting
