Autumn leaves

There are almost no autumnal colored leaves to spot in Oslo yet, we've had an exceptionally warm and very enjoyable month so far. But I see all these autumn challenges in blogland which inspired me to make this card.
I had this piece of white paper with striped texture left, added brown, orange and red DIs along with orange and brown mists, added water and just dipped the paper into the mix. Then I used stamps from two different Lawn Fawn sets, clear embossed and colored with the same mix as the paper, along with the gold embossed leaves (not sure of the brand). I mounted it all into gold and orange panels. Added a die cut banner with a sentiment - today is your day.

This card is for:
TIME OUT Challenges - #66 Inspired By Photo
City Crafter Challenge - #329 Turning a New Leaf
Addicted to Stamps - #131 Trees, Branches and/or Leaves

Delightful, & fun autumn card. Love the DI misty paper, at first though you were playing with Brushos. It's a wonderful background for the cute fox perched in the gold embossed leaves, so lots of texture on that too. It's a beautiful fall card indeed! TFS & have a great week.

Beautiful and warm tones, Pia! Your background looks very well. Love the cute fox with the leaves and the trees! The gold embossing and the glittered stack are just perfect for Autumn!
Also in Italy Fall season isn't arrived yet, the night are more cold, but -if there isn't the wind- the sun shines and the weather is warm. No rain here, everything is dry.
Hugs, have a lovely week!

Where to start? This is a FABULOUS card all the way around... so, as usual, your layout is perfectly balanced, but your inky fall colors put this over the top for me. I can definitely see the subtle texture of the white paper and will seek something similar in my stash to play with today! XO
