Falling Leaves - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #79

The weather is definitely cooler!  Can you feel Autumn in the air?  I thought I would take a break from making Christmas cards and make some Fall/Thanksgiving cards and to do this, I used the sketch challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday here
I have been fascinated by the Autumn Accents die and have been trying different things to give the leaves dimension and I think I succeeded.  But, I'm ahead of myself.
Here is the card:
 

Technique:
After die cutting the leaves in different colors, I folded them in half and laid them at an angle in the woodgrain folder.  The edges were sponged with Early Espresso, and then the leaves were spritzed with gold smooch.  The acorn was made by cutting the top off a Soft Suede one, embossing it with the Square lattice folder, and then attaching it to the top of the Summer starfruit acorn.  I learned this technique from Frances Martin (Frenchie).  The leaves and acorn was attached to a 2 1/2" circle using dimensionals.
