Autumn Wreath

Something seasonal for an autumn birthday today, using a DRS Designs stamp, which I've stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento for a softer look than black, then coloured with Promarkers.
 I die cut the card base from a 6x6 kraft blank, using a Grand Spellbinders Decorative Circles dies, reinforcing the hinge part with a coat of PVA glue to make it a little stronger.  I then used plain Grand Circles dies and another die from the Decorative Circles set for the matting and layering, choosing autumnal cardstock in a variety of finishes.
To embellish, I added a punched tag, stamped with a Personal Impressions stamp, topped with a baker's twine bow, and I finished my card off with a bow made from orange spotty ribbon.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
