Moving along with the Times - Autumn Leaves

It's my turn this week to host the challenge at Moving Along with the Times and I chose the theme of Autumn Leaves. Unfortunately my eyes have been so bad that I didn't get the chance to write my MAWTT post as Hostess and Hazel (Didos) did it for me - thank you, Hazel. My blog post had been scheduled, apart from this couple of sentences, so there was no problem for me there.

Here's my card and for a change I haven't used any image, only a sentiment, diecut leaves and embossed background.

The large card blank is by Joanna Sheen and the brown card is by Papermill. The embossing folder is by Crafter's Companion. The quote was taken from the internet and is by Elizabeth Lawrence. After generating on the computer I cut it with a Sue Wilson die and raised it on foam pads. The leaves are mostly cut with Spellbinder dies but there's also a Marianne leaf die amongst them. The varying shades of card and paper are from my stash.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
2 Cute Ink Digital Stamps Challenge - Orange, Yellow and Brown
Dream Valley Challenges - Anything Goes
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - Add a Sentiment
Craft Creations New Challenge - Anything Goes
Great Impressions November Challenge - Thankful Thoughts
Lacy Sunshine Challenge - Harvest or Thanksgiving
