Hi, Marshia! What a terrific, artsy, autumn card! Have you considered entering it in the september challenge over at Hero Arts? http://heroarts.com/blogs/club/september-2012-contest-details/ Love the rich fall colors and leaves! :-)
I don't know how I missed this card! This is just spectacular!
That background is gorgeous. I'm with Christin, I've got to try that technique.
I wrote a comment for this a few weeks ago, but it didn't work. The gist was... This is AMAZING!!! The leaves just look spectacular, and thank you for the detailed instructions, so I can have a go at this technique. Best card I've seen in a while!
This is just gorgeous! I wish I could do something like this! I love the colors and the embossing and just everything!
This is absolutely beautiful! I love the effect the EP created with the leaves in combo with the BG! Wonderful! And I really like the spritzed ink!
TFS how you did all this!

To create the BG i started with a very pale yellow cs then randomly added distress ink over the page, leaving some yellow. Then I stamped two different leaves (hero arts e2252- Sml. liquid amber & the lrg leaf, Judikins 9085H). And clear embossed all leaves. Then I added more distress ink and SU craft inks to emphasize the leaf edges. Then I spritzed the whole BG with Adirondack color washes in pesto,terra cotta and wild plum. The sentiment is computer generated.
