A big challenge for me!

Time for another Digital Tuesday challenge and boy was this a hard one for me!
The challenge this week is to make a clean and simple Fall card. This may sound easy but I do not do clean and simple and I couldn't help myself from adding some embellishments. Also Fall cards or Autumn as we call it in the UK are not really my kind of thing either so this challenge really was a hard one for me. Anyway this is what I eventually came up with. I think it is way too bare but I suppose that's what clean and simple is ment to be.
Our sponsor this week is KLM Designs and the winner will get 3 of their fab images which you can see on the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog.
I have no idea who makes this paper and I am not 100% about the image either but I will go have a look and see if I can find out where I got it then come back and add a link. The sentiment is from KLM, Flowers are Primas, ribbon and button from my stash.
I really like this cute image but I have to say this is not one of my favourite cards and it will probably end up in the bin. I did have fun colouring the image though.
In the UK we don't really send Autumn cards or Halloween cards so although there is some great images out there for this time of year, unfortunately, I don't really have a need to use them.
I hope you will join in with this weeks challenge and check out the other DT cards too. My dear friend Lorraine (Coldwaters) has joined the team and this is her first DT week, woohoo Lorraine!!
I'm off now to look through all the entries from last week because I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to look at them all yet. I'd better hurry up because I have to do the random thing and pick a winner for last week too!

You did a great job Lora! No way would I have guessed it was a challenge for you! Lovely coloring, perfect designer paper choice, and I think the embellishment is just right!

This turned out great. I really struggled with mine and I have to tell you that I was so relieved when I got it done *LOL* I just posted a picture of the card you sent Alyssa on her blog. Love it! Thanks again.
