Autumn Makeover

I think I have a bit of a leaf addiction!  I had a few spare leaf prints from my last autumnal card and was itching to use them, and before I knew it I was out collecting some more leaves to ink up and stamp.
What really got this card started though was the challenge at City Crafter to makeover an old card that had room for improvement, and then I found the Ribbon Girl's challenge with their beautiful inspiration photo and I was off!

This card had been sitting in my stash for a while ....

.... and I thought it could do with a little something extra.  To cut a long story short I got a bit carried away with all those lovely leaves.

The leaf prints are made from lovely green bendy leaves that are inked up on their veiny side then placed (ink-side down) on your card.  Put a piece of scrap paper over the top and then roll over with a brayer.

I'm also entering this into Hand Stamped Sentiments #141 with their lovely inspiration photo too
