Mojo Autumn

With Autumn well under way here in Oz, I decided to use that as my theme for a Mojo Monday challenge entry. Here's the sketch we have to play with this week:

I love the colours in the new Autumn Traditions designer papers and added in a couple of extras to suit the words in the poem ('russets, reds and golds'). I've used the Leaves No. 2 die, which I just HAD to get after seeing some gorgeous work by fellow team mates - you know who you are!

Here's my card:

I scored some veins on the leaves then crumpled them up and sponged them to make them look a bit more as if they've just fallen off a tree. The poem is one I wrote many, many years ago. My card ended up being rather a large one, but as it probably won't get mailed to anyone it won't matter too much!

Hope you like it; thanks for calling in today.
