Fall Back for Power Poppy

Hello! Today I have a card for the Power Poppy World Card Day Making  Challenge 2-  SPRING FORWARD, FALL BACK!
We are to make a card capturing one of the 2 seasons occurring on the two far ends of the world.  I am entering a Fall Card using Power Poppy stamp set Sunny Harvest.  I stamped the Chinese Lanterns with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on ivory CS and colored with Copics Y38,YR2,38,R24, E0000, 15,43, YG03,63,67. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Olive Green. I cut the image with Rectangle Die and layered on Pattern Paper mat from Teresa Collins World Traveler Pad  and then a layer of Polka Dot from Fancy Pants Collection of the Moment. Card base is an Ivory CS.  I added a ribbon of satin green with Copper Leaves to finish.  (See the top card.)  On the bottom photo, I decided to add some Metallic Leaves ( Die cuts found in stash) and a Copper brad, but not decided if like better without the leaves or with.  Any thoughts?
