CFC26: Create a Clean And Simple card using the sketch

My card for this challenge:                              

I chose a Christmas theme, it felt like a fa-la-la-la kinda day. Fun to come home and make a card.
Relaxing and enjoyable.
This photo is close up of Fa la la girl by Penny Black. My favorite christmas stamp.

 This is my card, I used the fall colour pallate in the photo and embossed the leaves with Thank you. I picked up the browns, oranges and reds from the photo and created a leaf montage.
For the background I used gesso and impressed leaves spine intoit. It provided a nice texture. The red string picked up the red berries.
I brought in some "real" leaves for the photo to give some reality to the card.
Hence my cats got hold of them and they are all over the house now!
