Autumn Leaves

Day 214 of 365 Cards has a challenge to use this sketch on a card.
Have to admit it was hard for me...just not really my style I guess.
I'm not a "white space" scrapper anyway, and the position of this white space was a bit tricky for me to pull off.
I hope I didn't warp it too much turning it upside down and using big images around the border.
Oh, well it was the best I could come up with.
I hand cut red, brown, yellow, and orange leaves.....added veins with a marker and inked the edges with brown ink.
I then put the leaves through the cuttelbug using the swirls folder and inked over top of the swirls in brown.
The card is done in swirls --  edges and swirls inked in brown.
The sentiment (Autumn Leaves from Happen Stamps)  is stamped on yellow card stock and layered 4 more times....all edges inked in brown.
I also added Kaleidoscope Transparent Embossing Powder to the leaves to make them sparkle.
