Autumn Leaves

Hello, everyone!  Here I am again today to share a fall card.  I've only been sleeping a few hours a night so it's a good time to get caught up on my crafting.  I feel zonked out but I'm getting lots of crafting done!

I die cut my Cheery Lynn Leaves and sponged with various inks.  I don't have a lot of distress ink so I just used what I had, plus some Stampin' Up and a few others.  Then I embossed the leaves with clear embossing powder (The Artful Stamper)  - they look fabulous in person!  The word stamp is Stampin' Up Season by Season, stamped with Ancient Page Sienna, and the embossing folder is Darice Leaves Assorted Pattern.  Cardstock is Stampin' Up Only Orange.  

I would like to support the following challenges:
