Autumn leaves for retirement

There are many autumnal challenges around at the moment and recently I was lucky enough to be a top 3 winner at a bit more time to craft and won some fab digital papers to go along with their freebie Friday papers.

 These autumn leaves are one of those and I decided they would work so well with this lovely stamp from Sugar Nellie.I coloured the image with promarkers and then fussy cut the image before sticking directly onto the card base.

I decided to keep the card quite clean and in keeping with autumnal colours I used a Kraft card base.

 I added the leaves paper in a band and edged it with gold strip peel-offs. I added a sentiment of 'on your retirement' again a gold peel-off. card finished.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
