Autumnal scene

There are still quite a few autumnal challenges around atm, as well as those that cater for preparing us for Christmas.

This card is for:

Pile it on
23: fall challenge: use a leaf or leaves (the idea of 'Pile it on' is to find other challenges that can be done at the same time. So here are the rest:

Our Creative Corner
: inspiration challenge, with this photo:

Play Date Cafe 4: 'blue/green, chocolate brown, tan and cream' - all there in some degree
The Color dare 42: 'really rust, chocolate chip, bashful blue
Paper Blooms: 'blue, orange and white'
Fiskarettes Monday challenge: 'use a leaf'
Kaboodle 17: 'fall splendour'
Cafe mojo: 'fall, fall, fall into the season'
Spoon full of sugar 77: 'create a scene'
Try it out Tuesday 43: 'create a scene'
Creative Inspirations 35: 'new or neglected' - definitely neglected: this invertage picture set is one among others that have been in a box at the back of the cupboard
Incy wincy 17: 'thank you'
Pink elephant 40: 'be thankful'
365 cards day 224: 'create a foreground/background image'
How much is too much? 119: 'going green' - there is some green on here - and 'green' in the sense of 'recycled' - the leaves with berries were off some Christmas crackers a couple of years ago
Inspire me Thursday: 'tree'
One powerful hour: 'leaves'
Hope stamps eternal: cupcake inspiration 33, with this picture:

The card is an invertage one (opposite of decoupage), although even taking the photos at an angle don't really show the depth of layers as they are irl. To give a clue as to the depth: the sentiment had to be built up with five layers of foam tape on the bottom half that stuck directly on the card blank.
