An Autumn Anniversary

The challenge at MFP Speedy & Friends challenge #130 is "leaves." I made this card for a sweet friend who celebrates an Autumn anniversary, so I used Autumn Spice dsp's from LillyBee and added a few punched leaves done with a MS punch. I colored the leaves with Copics and added glossy accents to make them look realistic. I used a labels 25 die for the main panel and mat, embossing the edges, sentiment and flourishes with gold ep. I added 3 brads, some pretty gingham ribbon, and a little piece of gold cording for the finishing touch.
It's a gorgeous Autumn day here in PA, and I hope wherever you are it's just as nice! Have a great day!
