Less is More with Autumn's Bounty

It's a color challenge on the Less is More blog this week.  "Autumn's Bounty" --"autumnal shades."

My card features two leaves....one stamped in black on a Distress background; the other heat-embossed in gold.  (I CANNOT identify the origin of the stamp; it's one of a set of leaves that lost its original packaging.)  The pattern at the left of the black layer is from a napkin, and the sentiment is a Clear Mini Stamp from Inkadinkado.

Hello Evelyn
Oh Goodness, this card is so full of drama, what an amazing design. Adding the napkin with that hint of colour, lifts this card to another level. I really really like it.
