Autumn Card

Hi, everyone! I'm not so sure about autumn but when it comes to autumn cards, I surely love them!!! So I made another one for this week's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil Too which has for you the theme of:

Ribbon and/or Bows

I'm pretty sure this is an easy one:)
So, back to my autumn card. Mo has the most exquisite fall images and the cutest kids ever. So I just picked this lovely Carolina barely carrying those huge carrots and made an autumn card. Hope you like it, because this is one of my favorite:

Here's a close-up of this cutie:

 And the sentiment:

The image is colored with copics and promarkers and the backing papers are mainly from Basic Grey- Pyrus collection. The embellishments are partly Wild Orchid Crafts and partly made especially for this card. I made the mushroom with gypsum mould then colored with acrylic paint and varnish. I rolled up some paper to make the carrots then glued some leaves.
Oh, I forgot to mention, I've also succeeded to get a new die cutting machine. Since I didn't have time to order it abroad I bought a Cuttlebug at my local store (they also had Big Shots which they strongly advised:))  and headed straight home to finish a card. Well, as expected, things were not as simple as that. There was a certain plate "missing"- the C one seemingly- for "thin" dies (lol, 80% of my dies are thin, aren't yours?:)). Have I mentioned my other plates- including the embossing ones were stuck in the Big Shot?
It's really frustrating to buy something and not be able to use it because something as insignificant as a piece of plastic is missing. It's like buying a toy for your little one and realize, when you get home,that it has no batteries:(.

I eventually managed to cut out the sentiment with some nestie labels. I found this autumn wish on the internet and designed it in Photoshop. In case you like it, please feel free to grab it:):
