Sponged maple leaves in autumn

Hello friends, hope the week is going on great for all. I am somewhat free now. September always starts with bit of excitement, as the first week has my birthday and marriage anniversary within days apart. I am done with the two, so I can say the excitement is over, and I can focus on the crafting and blogging now ;)

This card is sitting with me for last 3 days, some of you might have seen a peek of the incomplete card on Instagram, I finished it 2 days back. So here it is.
I started of with a hand cut maple leaf stencil, and used the below inks to sponge the leaves in random fashion.
I used Uniko Studio - background builders - winter vines to stamp the pine leaves and cones. The sentiment is also from Uniko - all occasion sentiments. I stamped in black, and heat embossed using clear EP. It is a one layer card.
