Winter is coming...

Remember last week, when I wrote about 'Polish Golden Autumn'? Well... 'Polish Golden Autumn' become 'Polish Unexpected Winter'! Just look at the pics I took yesterday walking home from school!
Doesn't it feel like Christmas?

Anyway, it's still an autumn, and this is the theme of our new fantastic challenge at
Everything that is related to fall: atmosphere, colors, leaves, weather. Just fall.
 Our sponsor for October's challenges is
Floppy Lattes Digital Designs ::All Digital All The Time 

My DT card is a little vintage, because this is what the fall brings to me: a vintage mood. All those colors, especially in a rainy day, makes me a little sentimental.
I used the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges for this card.
 I've chosen a sponsor's image and you can find it HERE. There are lots of silhouette digis there and I love them, it was hard to decide which one should I choose. The image is inked and distressed all around. The sentiment says: 'For your B'day - this is your day!'.
The flowers are made by me, as well as the bow. There are also some real stitches all around the card, hope you can see them. The faux stitches are behind the image.
You probably recognize those two hearts - they are the Marianne Design's dies. I have to admit that I have a problem using those dies with my Big Shot machine, it doesn't cut very well (especially small pieces), and there is no embossing, either. The other dies cut perfectly, only MD makes me wanna scream trying to tease out the paper from a die... Do you know any tips & tricks to improve it?
Inside the card you can find the same motives.
The card is also for the following challenges:
