Autumn Leaves

Just a quick card today as I have been working on theme project which has now got me scratching my head on how I'm going to build what I need next.
A simple card using punched out leaves and inked up to add the colour I wanted, I used the sizzix fall embossing folder on the cream card, added a few berries and a pretty ribbon and a bit of love to bring it all together.
You can see from below that the leaves started their life yellow in colour, I used dye inks and blended them onto the leave to get the colour tones I wanted.

That is so elegant - the simplicity speaks for itself. Love it.

Can I ask did you draw the veins of the leaves in with pen?
