C4C14 - Let's Welcome Autumn

Happy Thursday everybody! It's time for another Crazy4Cocoa & Friends challenge! This week we're challenging you to make a card with an Autumn theme. For my card I used the Fall Time Cocoa clear stamp set, and paper-pieced the leaf. I used all K&Co autumn dp for the card, along with some really rust, and a few scraps of unknown green card stock. Cocoa was colored with Copics and I used an EK border punch on the horizontal panel, adding a few of the punched leaves and acorns for accents on the image and sentiment panel. The ribbon is retired CTMH.
If you play along with us, please use the keyword C4C14 and keep in mind that you don't have to use only Cocoa images. You can now use any of those cute animal "friends" of Cocoa that you'll find in the SNSS store.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great day!

Edit: I'm going to enter this card into the mid-week throwdown at the Stars & Stamps blog since their challenge is to make an autumn-themed card! This card is going into the next OWH box I'm working on :)

Someone is playing tricks on me because I just know I commented on this card yesterday. :-)
I love that punch and your paper-pieced leaves. Just adorable!
One of my Fall punches just fell apart..never even used it and one is chewing up the corners. Makes me want to throw a little fit. LOL
