Autumn in the garden!

Well I finally got my blinds all cut, stitched, washed and hung. Just waiting on new weights and beading to arrive. I am so please with how they came out!! Will add a photo to my kitchen tab up above later. Speaking of which it arrives here tomorrow and the men arrive on Wednesday to put it in. I am so excited! This is my first time ever getting a brand new kitchen!!
Anyway sorry for boring you, on to my card. I had a commission to make a card for a garden lover. She is from Thailand but now lives here and loves the autumn colours we get so based the card around that.
