"Knit Me Pretty" Autumn/Fall Card

Hello, and thank you for stopping by!  
It's time for a brand new Challenge at
Freshly Brewed Challenges!
This week we want to see your fabulous 
Autumn/Fall cards!
For my DT Card I  used the very special, 
As the evenings start to become cooler with Autumn weather, I felt drawn to this wonderful stamp.
I can just picture her knitting in her chair, all comfy and cozy, with a nice cup of coffee on her side table.
This stamped image is really easy to color and so much fun to work with.
I decided to paper piece her chair.  Fresh Brewed Designs stamps are such nice thick quality, and they have nice deep etching.  Stamping and paper piecing is simple and fun!  I get a perfect image every time!
I colored my image with Copic Markers
I used my scalloped circle nestabilities
I also used MFT Dienamics for the scalloped DP
The punches for the sentiment and the pearls are Stampin Up
The paper flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
The leaves are done with my favorite leaf Marianne Die
The ribbon is a-muse/studio
The card stock is SU
I used all of my old dp scraps on this card.
Four of the patterns are retired Stampin Up pieces

Guess what this week is?
