Leaves and woodgrain birthday card

I went out for a lovely walk earlier this week with my little girl and we collected lots of leaves together.  We then spent a happy afternoon inking the leaves and using a brayer to make leaf impressions on some brown paper.
I cut mine out to make a card.  She cut hers out to decorate the table.  And her chair.  Oh, and the floor.  But she had a good time!
I love the Trigger Tuesday picture at Moxie Fab World...

..and felt inspired to make a card with the woodgrain background, the brown of the bowl and those beautiful coloured leaves.

I watercoloured and stamped the woodgrain background, die cut the birthday boy's name and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment.

I'm also entering this into
