Anything Goes with a twist of 'Ribbons' with Crafty Catz and Extended GDT Call

First of all I would like to apologise for being AWOL and not getting round to comment on your blogs recently, I've been floored with a kidney infection and have been on antibiotics that haven't worked, now waiting on further test results and a referral to see the Urologist... Oh my word, the pains and how much it drains you out, my sleep pattern has been AWOL too, much more than normal! Will promise to get round your blogs as soon as I can! Thanks D xx

 Good Morning Crafty Friends, Bloggers and Followers,  gosh another week gone, my, they are whizzing by and the weather has changed too 'bbbrrrr' .... Autumn is certainly here!! Well as you know it's Friday and it's time for another new challenge over at Crafty Catz. We have also extended our GDT call, so if you fancy joining us, then do please give it a go!! ... Our theme this week is 'Anything Goes' with a twist of 'Ribbons' and sponsoring us is the fabulous Sami Stamps. For my inspiration, and in keeping with Autumn and all it's array of glorious colours, I have used the gorgeous image Acorn Harvest.  Without further ado, here is what I created ...

I placed another small piece of ribbon on top, with an array of flowers, berry pins and die cut leaves.
