It's A Quirky Autumn Leaves Challenge

It's that Quirky Challenge Time Again. {{{mad wave}}This time round it's Diane's turn to set the theme and she has chosen....

~~Autumn Leaves~~
So that's autumn colours, harvest time, fall, all that sort of thing but we need to see leaves too!! Don't forget you can make anything crafty, it doesn't have to be a card. ( I'm thinking compost heap now, no, forget that..that's not crafty! just smelly)
This time we're sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, so all the DT and this weeks Guest Designer had some of their digi's to play with. I used the Woodland Trees scene, printed onto my own backing paper, Leaves, which I made completely by accident. If you haven't already you can download it free here.
I also printed 'leaves' straight onto a orangey/pinky pearl card, and onto paper, printed the digi onto it too, so there's no colouring other than that. I layered the black and pearl card, added ribbon from my stash and some punched out leaves. The larger leaves are embossed. The stamped image 'Autumn' is by Hero Arts, was heat embossed using black ink and clear embossing power, was also stamped onto the same 'leaves' paper, so no extra colouring there either. The paper clip was there at first to hold the picture in place, but I decided to 'leave' it there! Everything was fixed together with either Photo and/or silicone glue and a Quickie Glue pen. So, you should now be thinking about leaves, make something crafty and pop over to Quirky Craft's Challenge blog and join in! Hopefully, this is now in it's right place! Sunday evening and not somewhere in last week!! That's it! Thanks for stopping by!
Anythingchallenge- to the letter.
(My word Autumn I hope that fits ok!)
(Dry on the leaves and heat on the stamped image)
