Autumn colors and Retro Rubber sketch

I have had this Lawn Fawn set - love you a latte - for about 8 years, and it was only yesterday, as I watched a video about this set, that I realized the donut was not an odd looking saucer. Now that I know it's a donut I cannot understand why I didn't see that before! Suddenly I felt I had found a treasure in my stash, and I had fun decorating the donut with brown and red fine glitter, glitter glue and some tinsel looking glitter.
The background was made with a stencil from Altenew, and autumn colored  Distress Oxide inks ((yellow, red, green and brown) and a baby wipe. I added matching colored rhinstones for some extra sparkle.
The card layout was inspired by the Retro Rubber Challenges sketch.

This card is for:
Retro Rubber Challenge - #191 Sketch
Fab n Funky - #557 Autumn Colors
Everybody-Art-Challenge - #520 Coffee or Tea

RRCB 191

This is so lovely Pia. You made me giggle about the donut, I have been known to change the image in a stamp into something else.🤣

Hahaha, I love your narrative. I have a set that has a bird holding a french fry and the sentiment is all about that and I only realised after someone commented on my card LOL. Love the scallop framing of your card. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT

This is really beautiful! I love the frame and I love the colours. Great background and a wonderful design with the "warm wishes" between the cups and the donut.
Your rhinestones are really great eye-cathchers as well.
Thank you very much for joining the current challenge at EverybodyArtChallenges.
