Gently Falling Thanks

When I started this card, I really didn't plan on stamping the leaves, but when I stamped on my large background stamp I didn't press hard enough in the center and some of the images didn't appear.  So, instead of starting all over, I decided to stamp some leaves from the Gently Falling Stamp Set in an assortment of fall colors to fill in the blank spaces.  You can usually find a way to fix your mistakes, and sometimes the outcome is better than the original plan.
My card base is Bravo Burgundy Card Stock, with a layer of Whisper White that was stamped with the large En Francais Stamp using Bravo Burgundy Ink.  I stamped my leaves with Crumb Cake, More Mustard, and Bravo Burgundy ink.  I also embossed a piece of More Mustard Card Stock using one of the Delicate Design Embossing Folders, and added some More Mustard 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon and my Thank You that was punched out with the 1/1/4" Scallop Circle Punch.
The following were used:
