Another leather leaf on a collage background - birthday card

I need another birthday card so I decided to create a collage background with a few of the supplies on my desk - decorative paper, collage scraps, leaf punchies, mop up paper, book page scraps, ATC, etc.  I used a scrap of cardstock as a base and glued all my elements on until I was happy with the layout.  I added a bit of watercolour to help incorporate all the elements.  I trimmed it to size and mounted it to a rust card front.  I added an embossed strip of mustard coloured cardstock and mounted my stitched leaf over it using double sided tape.  I tied some green raffia to the stem and added a bit of glue to adhere those two elements to the card.  I trimmed a laser printed greeting and layered it onto an embossed piece of orange cardstock, flagged both of the ends and tucked it under the mustard strip.  Love how it turned out!!
