Falling Leaves - 2nd Post Today

I SHOULD have been doing laundry today but I've been having more fun playing in my craft room.

I guess that autumn is in the air in most places, it's still in the 90's here. I did my best to remember what autumn looks like and came up with this.

Card base: Kraft paper covered by layers of different autumn colors.
McGill Grape Leaf punch
Unity Stamps Greatful Hearts stamp set
Brads, sequins, adhesives, Versamark Ink and embossing powder
Mojo Monday Sketch for this week

Stamp leaves on your layers, using various colors of ink then adhere your layers to card front. Wrap ribbon as shown in sketch.
I embossed the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, layer onto a scrap of Kraft paper, attach leaf brads then adhere to front of card. Add some sequins for sparkle. I also added a couple of leaf brads and some punched leaves. I put a few more of the punched leaves inside.

I'm entering this card into these challanges:
Mountain Plains Crafters - Fall Card Challenge
