Falling Leaves

I'm back, it's still Friday, and this is my second post today!  I spent some time today in my craft room, I was working on some upcoming projects, and decided to make a fall project.  There have been so many cute fall cards I've been seeing on line, and I decided to play along.  Here is what I came up with:

It's a pretty simple card,  but I am pleased with how it turned out.  The leaves are from B is for Boy.  I did lots of inking on this card, not something I usually do - I used some Tim Holtz Distress ink in Walnut.  I stamped the sentiment in the same ink.  The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Happy Fall.  The paper is a mix of Recollections, SU and Bazzil, and the ribbon is from Michael's.

A challenge or two for my card:
