Fall card with an ATC

I made this fall themed birthday card for one of the guys in my family.
I started with a rust card that I embossed with a leaves embossing folder (QK) and then distressed with my stipple stamp (SU) and then sponged all the way around with brown ink.  I added a strip of decorative mesh (window screening that has been embossed with gold embossing powder) which I cut with flag ends and adhered with two pieces of handmade washi tape.  The bright background is from an ATC which I dismantled and it worked perfectly for this card.  I added a watercoloured laser printed greeting to the back using double sided tape and adhered this focal element over the mesh.  I found some wonderfully autumn looking paper in my paper stash, glued it to some cardstock to add some heft to it and die cut several leaves (TH - Tattered Leaves).  I embellished it with several colours of ink using a sponge and added some veining with watercolour.  Attached the leaf to my card front using 3D foam tape.
