Another TK card :)

I had put this card up months ago under a different title but for some reason it attracted TONS of spam comments, so I deleted it & am now reposting with a new title in the hope it doesn't have the same problem.  If anyone knows a good way to blocking such spam, I'm open to ideas!!
Another in the range of TK designs as I’ve just SO many of these to play with at the moment – hard to make my mind up which one to use – it’s just such a privilege to be able to access his awesome work in this manner and to create pretty neat cards from them.  I chose to make this in the horizontal fold style rather than an easel just for a change.

This one features a design called "Mountain Retreat" which depicts a wonderful bright woodland scene complete with pheasants & deer alongside a lovely waterfall and stream.   The topper image is matted onto brown & gold mirri paper to reflect the autumnal colours of the painting.  The background paper of the card comes from another K&Co pad - this time Brianna - & is also matted onto copper backing card. And again I've used my trusty Martha Stewart punch to provide a little strip to sit on top of a lace line underneath the topper, which adds a little more depth.

Flowers as always are from Wild Orchid Crafts & are a mixture of roses (25 mm, 15 mm,  & 10 mm) that again accentuate the colours setting off the card beautifully.  Finished off with beautiful gold "gypsophila" sprigs and punched leaves.  As usual I've highlighted the rosese with some Stickles glitter.

The inside is similarly decorated to complement the outside and features a cream rectangle panel for the greeting to be placed on.  

This card will be up on my Ebay Shop shortly.
