Fall (again) at The Outlawz

The theme for the Saturday Paper A LA Mode challenge at the Outlawz is Fall/Halloween.  As I don't do Halloween, I needed to go with "Fall"

I started by punching lots of leaves in various Fall colours.  I pasted them onto an offcut of cs, and then trimmed the edges:

It was covered with a piece of acetate, and recessed (using foam blocks) behind a cut out rectangle on the front panel of the card.

That panel was then matted onto orange cardstock, and extra punched leaves added.  The sentiment is digital.
