Autumn - framed

I was tasked with coming up with a prize for a raffle with an autumn theme. I had already made a card similar to this here. I had a comment left that it would look good in a frame and so I put the two ideas together and went to buy a frame. Unfortunately I couldn't find one the right size, so I started again! This time the background is a little bolder due to it not being a CAS entry. I used cut and dry to make the background and then again stamped trees on some paper I coloured and embossed them, then tore around them. Finally I carefully (!) stamped a PTI sentiment onto the mount. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, and my raffle prize was solved. Next month I need to get something for the raffle being with the letter of my name, so that will be "L". I've thought of Lavender, lace- any other thoughts?
I'd like to enter it into these challenges:-
Moving Along with The Times challenge - autumn leaves
Paperplay challenge - autumnal colours
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge - no DPs

It is beautiful! I love the bolder colours - they set off those trees perfectly. I love all of the PTI stamps you have been using - have you found a retailer over here or do you get them from the states?
