And here is what I created for today!
I used the adorable Acorn Mouse rubber stamp by Meljens, along with Raindrop Echo's Lavish Flourishes and Autumn Seals sentiment.

The image has been colored using derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. The papers are from a paper pack by K& Company.

I added a button and some crumb cake seam binding ribbon. Then distressed and sewed the edges. In the corners I used the small stamp from Raindrop Echo's Lavish Flourishes, I just repeatedly stamped it to get the look I wanted. Then added a brad to each of the corners.
I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
