A challenging last minute change of heart!

Nikki decided to do another DewDropz Challenge where she said;

As we are now watching the autumn leaves falling and the colours of nature changing.. with the weather turning from warm(ish) to so chilly some days, you wonder why you got out of bed.. this weeks challenge is 'Autumnal Colours'
I would love to see all your projects using colours from autumn..
Now I got out all my rust, red, yellow and browns and started faffing around but it just wasn't coming together so at the last minute I decided to cheat. Seeing yet another wonderful Halloween creation over on Dottie's World this morning inspired me to make Amelia's birthday card a bit different this year, she is a Halloween baby after all!

Nikki, I hope this can still be included in your challenge, after all Halloween is Autumnal...isn't it?LOL, doesn't really matter I am quite pleased with the result and I have another card off my to do list!

I am also entering this into this week's Dutch Dare where this week it's "Just Cardstock!"
Here it is. I used the lovely Charlotte stamp from DewDropz Craftz..I was hoping for a gothic tone too..LOL...hmm not quite sure I have managed that.
PS, don't look too close you will see that the glossy accents are STILL not dry on the paper fastener so I have to pop a brad through it when it is!LOL.

I do a lot of 'faffing' ... but never quite manage to 'faff' with such good results as you do.
