Autumn Birthday

I was inspired by Lisa Young's card, but her's was much better! In fact, hers is so much better, I'm not even going to link to it so that you will still like mine, lol! I just didn't have the time to stamp and cut out a half dozen leaves because I needed to send out 3 of these to family members for their birthdays. Did I mention that September is a very busy month?! I have 2 cards I need to get out in the mail for last  week!
For these cards, I stamped on the Cajun Craze paper, then ran embossed it with Finial Press, then used a sponge dauber to apply Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to the raised parts. I also stamped leaves on the Daffodil Delight paper before punching/die cutting those pieces. They got a little Shimmer paint also. I love that stuff, sigh.... I really am not happy with theses cards, but I was on a deadline, so they will have to do. Not every card card be a masterpiece! Like mine are anyway, lol! Roll eyes....
  • Stamps: Autumn Splendor, Occasional Quotes
  • Paper: Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight
  • Other: Big Shot with Leaves #2 die and Finial Press embossing Folder, Designer Label punch, Wide Oval punch, Signo white gel pen, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Sponge Dauber, Chocolate Chip satin ribbon (retired), Antique Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, SNAIL
 And a full picture of the card. What do you think? Colors too bright, not enough details, not well balanced?

I love the idea of creating the mat for the sentiment out of die-cut leaves!
