Fall Leaves

I have been in the mood lately to use a lot of "texture".....
You might remember the card I made a week or so ago
where I mixed several different glitters for a pretty fall glittery card.
 
 
For today's card, I did somewhat the same thing, only I sprinkled several
different colors of embossing powder on my stamped leaves....
the colors used were all Tim Holtz Distressed EB powders in the colors
fired brick, peeled paint, mustard seed, walnut stain and tea dye....
I first stamped my beautiful JustRite stamps from the Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves set
with versamark, then used a 1/8 tsp to start adding the colors.
 
I cut each leaf out by hand and arranged them over a BIG rosette I made..
I stamped the cute little sentiments in a punched circle 
in the same color inks as the EB powders
I added a piece of burlap tied together with seam binding bow, twine
and a pretty heart button to finish it off!!
 
The entire thing was adhered to a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 Kraft card stock.
 
I am entering this is the following challenge:

Wow! This is not just a card, but one of those pieces of art that kept wanting me to stare at it! I am amazed at the pattern and texture and techniques you used just on the leaves alone! Really a lot of artistry here and I felt inspired by your project. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog.
