Golden Autumn Leaves

This is my card for Charlene's sketch challenge for STV this week. I turned the sketch to make a horizontal card so I could used the verse from the stamp set I won from GinaK last week. This was very difficult to photograph since I used gold vellum and printed the digital paper on glossy paper...lot of reflection going on.
I began with dark brown CS as the base card. I cut 3 circles from gold vellum and stamped the leaves with brown ink. After letting dry overnight, I colored leaves with  pencils and sponged the larger circle with pumpkin spice. Attached circles to brown CS circles. I cut all circles with Fiskars circle cutter. On gold vellum cut 5.25" by 4",  I stamped  the sentiment in upper corner and a row of acorns across the bottom. Again this had to dry awhile. Attached vellum mat to brown base. Attached the strip of digital paper and then the 3 circles. Raised the center circle with dimensionals.  Hope you can see details in the photo.
