Falling Leaves

It's that time of year again, the leaves are changing colors and falling off the trees. Here in Arizona they don't do much changing of colors, green to yellow then they fall. It takes until sometime in December for all of them to fall, I do miss the changing colors we had in Michigan.

I created the background by stamping the page with various colors and leaves, the stamps are all from Unity Stamp's, "Grateful Hearts" kit which I have had for about a year and a half to two years.
I used a really old Cuttlebug die to die cut the maple leaves on the sentiment panel, the 2 small leaves on top of the sentiment panel are brads that I removed the prongs from and attached with hot glue. I added a piece of twine on the fold.

I am entering this card into these challenges:
