Autumn scraps

This 'autumnal' card is for the sketch on Clearly inspired challenge 37:

which lends itself perfectly to using up scraps for:

Do you stack up 41: use your scraps

The background piece is an offcut from a 12 x 12 PM paper birdsong collection (there's actually a bird on the paper, but covered up). The other pieces from left to right are Victoria & Albert linen paper, DCWV, BG and I'm not sure what the yellow one matting the sentiment is. I distressed the white sentiment embossed card and the yellow surrounding lightly with brushed corduroy and fired brick DIs, which has resulted in an autumnal orange.

Colours are inspired by the photo for the pink elephant 120:

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