Fall leaves

Hey peeps, I am up with a card, I was not crafting for last few days, thankfully the MOJO is up and running, just didn't like creating anything.
I made this card yesterday. I went in my craft room to do some sponging, I used a water color paper for sponging, using distress inks - fired brick, vintage photo, forest moss, and mustard seeds. Then sprinkled some water .
I decided to die cut the panel, using Sizzix leaves die.
Now I had the die cut, and didn't had the card base ready, I started in reverse for this card.
I decided to chose a black textured card stock as base, and then use Newton's Nook - winged wishes to stamp the sentiment and birds, used water color paper for this, coloured using the zigs, and fussy cut to add.
I used acrylic paint splatters in yellow and brown on the base card, then added a green burlap on the top, and arranged the sentiment and the birds on the burlap, added the leaves to the base, and done. I love he dramatic look of the autumn/fall colours against the black. Hope you all like it too.
