Autumn card

Hi there friends, just popping in with my usual
card for this week's 'Less is More' challenge.
 
It's a colour theme this time and 'Hot & Spicy' 
This is what I came up with after a bit of 'faffing'
about.
 
My card is later than usual as it's been a very
 challenging week to say the least for our family.
Also we had our grandchildren to stay also.
 
I will leave you the recipe for my OH's honey
ice-cream below too. Hope you love it as much
as we do ;)
 
Enjoy your week whatever you have planned!
 
 
LIM, Spicy, CAS
 
White Linen card
Bristol Board white card
TH Distress inks
My Favorite Things Sentiment Label Strip
Lawn Fawn leaves dies
Waffle Flower sentiment dies
TH Distress spray stain Tarnished Brass 
 
 I edged the leaves with the brass stain
 
 
 
Just love this shaped die!
 
 
Honey Ice-Cream 
 
 
Recipe
(not sure where we saw original recipe, sorry)
 
Equal amounts of fresh custard & double cream
(We use the normal carton size of custard from either
 Tesco or Waitrose).
1-2 tea spoons Vanilla extract (to taste)
4 table spoons runny honey
 
Mix all together then chill in fridge for 30 mins.
Then put it in ice-cream machine to churn for
 20-30 mins. Freeze.
 
We just take a portion and add some crunchie bar
 crumbled up. It's so yummy, I guess it could be adapted
by adding melted chocolate and raspberries too?
 
My OH makes several different types, not sure of 
recipe for those but this is our favourite so far.
Enjoy ;)

Oh goodness! I was not prepared for that yummy dessert after your beautiful card. Got my mouth watering now! Your leaves are gorgeous and I love the way you used that band colored in the same manner to house your white sentiment. Wonderfully artsy and CAS.
