More Autumn, Please!!!!!

Hello everyone: I'm here with yet another Autumn card, one that will be mailed this week, along with the others I made, to my family and friends.  I'm linking this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

Before I go further, I hope you are noticing my little water mark on this card!! After many, many days of trying to figure out how the heck to do this, after some of my dear friends tried to guide me and explain how to go about it with no luck, I finally sat down yesterday for a while, looking for some kind of tutorials that would be simple enough for me to understand.  I finally saw one that had some really good pictures and explanations and I was able to follow them and, it is, my water mark, nothing fancy, no graphics (which I will try to get later) just my name and the name of my blog, I was so darn happy, like a kid finally figuring out that pesky Calculus problem she had for homework, phew!!! feels great!!
Anywho, this fabulous image is from a brand new set from Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley called Feeling Fall, just perfect for this time of the year. I stamped it onto a piece of Canson water color paper with Versafine black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, die cut it with the Wonky Stitched dies and colored it with SU markers and an aqua painter. I stamped the sentiment the same way.  The "happy fall" on the little tag on the top are from another Power Poppy set called Olive and Oak.
The pattern papers are from my stash.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and Sun Flower are from retired Flourishes sets.

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.
