A Bird in Autumn

Hello again, just heading off to bed but getting this post done quickly.
The snowman card from last night's post went well at class today and in the end only had two ladies making it. Another lady was on kitchen duty and the other is going into hospital shortly and had things to organise beforehand. She is the craft co-ordinator and she was a bit stressed out.
The boys and hubby have all been out in the shed mucking around getting bikes ready. One is in pieces after being painted, another was also being worked on and the third one had been tweaked as well and maybe a new battery. They are off at the end of the month to go to Phillip Island to watch the motorbike race, It's a fair distance to travel and I think they are going to Melbourne for a night on the way.
So... I've made a card tonight, sometimes I just sit there and wonder what to make. I decided to look for some challenges first and make a card to suit!!!
Here is what I came up with......

Front of card - the image I used has a distressed look to it, not a clean crisp image

Inside of Card
SU Early Espresso cardstock for the cardbase
DP is from Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad called Lush Collection
SU Wild Wasabi cardstock
SU Pumpkin Pie cardstock
Nestie dies - large labels, classic circles - small
Circle Punch (used on the image)
Border Punch - EK
Image is from SU set ~ Four Seasons - this one is Autumn/Fall
Sentiment is rubber stamp from stash (not sure who makes it)
SU Early Espresso inkpad
Pearls from stash

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Bearly-Mine Challenges - Challenge #57 ~ Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Challenge #21 ~ Birds
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - Challenge #36 ~ Anything Goes
