Have a fabulous (autumn) birthday

This card is for Crazy challenge 88 sketch, with optional autumn colours:

Once again, I've used offcuts from my scraps box, including a die cut circle of BG paper stamped with one of my favourite leaf stamps by Stampers Anonymous with memento rich cocoa. Edges have been distressed with spiced marmalade and fired brick. The gold foiled sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

One again, colours are inspired by the photo for the pink elephant 120:

and this photo inspiration for Papercraft star 66, which must include a leaf:
