Autumn Card

Just thought I'd share a card I made this evening.  I made the background paper by stamping leaves in versamark and embossing with silver pearl powder then painted over them in a mix of red, green, gold and yellow paints that have a bit of a shine to them.  Once dry I rubbed over the embossing with some cotton wool to remove excess paint, trimmed and matted then added sentiment which was from Sentimental Sundays (long time ago) which was cut using sizzix ticket die as was the mat and finished off with four leaf brads that have been in my stash for years just hadn't found the right card to use them on but really like them here.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin' ~ Focus on the sentiment
Crazy 4 Challenges #154 ~ Anything goes with an autumn theme
OSAAT #131 ~ Autumn
Stamptacular Sundays #181 ~ Less is More
