Autumnal thank you

It's the end of a fairly busy day and I'm not feeling great, but just wanted to make one card. I've used a background that's been in my stash for a long time, mounted on to a dark brown card blank with the addition of the chipboard leaf, the strips across the middle and a Creata textured rub on 'thank you'. I was spurred on to make this for Kathy's facebook 'A card a day' - didn't want to miss today.
