Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 77 - Autumn or Autumn Festivals

Our challengeat Crafty Cardmakers this week is 'Autumn or Autumn Festivals - NOT Hallowe'en' and is hosted by Josephine
Josephine says 'There are always so many Hallowe'en challenges around! So instead of creating a Hallowe'en card I would like to see something that depicts the Season of Autumn, or maybe Harvest Festival, Guy Fawkes, Diwali or some other festival that happens in the Autumn. If your theme is a lesser-known festival, please tell us about it in your post! But remember, this is not a Hallowe'en challenge!
We are sponsored this week by One Stop Card Crafts who are offering a £10 voucher to one lucky person, and also Milk 'n' Coffee Digital Stamps.
 
 
I decided to go for Autumn and got out a Cuttlebug die that has lots of lovely leaves.  I cut them in various shades of browns/oranges plus some old gold.  The lovely sentiment is from Stampscapes.  Quite a simple card but very effective.

It really is effective, isn't it? Those leaves are so pretty, and the sentiment is the perfect finishing touch.

Such an effective design. The little row of leaves looks great. Definitely a case of less is more. Cxxx
