Leaves @Cards und More

Good morning bloggers
Its been a whole month since my last post for Cards und More so it must be a month since we came back from our jollies, The weather here has certainly turned autumnal it chucked it down yesterday and with the wind from the east there was a definite chill in the air.
This time the challenge for you is to create something with the theme of


Well as the drive will testify, there are plenty of those on the ground at the moment but I suppose your project doesn't have to be autumnal in colour so long as there is some stamping and leaves visible.
Here is my card for your inspiration

Yep, you've guessed it, I've got the Brushos out again. Well actually I didn't as there was plenty of card left from my last couple of plays! See here and here.
I used a new die for this wreath Sizzix Holiday Foliage to cut out the oak leaves from the Brusho panel and the berries from red card. I used a beech leaf punch for the green ones.
I stamped some kraft paper with my SU woodgrain stamp in Versamark then heat embossed in clear and mounted it over a panel of Brusho coloured card. I added some vanilla twine and a die cut sentiment from Spellbinders to finish it off before mounting on an off white A6 base.

OK that's about it for the moment, so please check out the rest of the DTs inspiration and join us over at Cards und More.

I shall enter the following challenges -
