Digi Haven DT Card - Fall

It's challenge time once again at Digi Haven, this fortnight we have the seasonal theme of "Fall" or "Autumn", if you're from this side of the Atlantic, and we're sponsored by Floppy Latte.  The DT were given a set of sponsor digi sentiments to work with, but you can use a digi image to play along if you prefer.
 I created the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a hand cut cloud mask, and the grass was made with torn Core'dinations.  I then cut the leafy canopy with my Memory Box die, which I bought a wee while back and hadn't used.........oops!  I inked a piece of mustard card with assorted autumnal coloured Distress Inks, and spritzed lightly to blend a bit.  After drying with a heat tool, I stuck it behind the canopy to give the leaves a variegated look.  Next, I cut a twiggy tree with a matching Memory Box die and glued it into place.  I decided to cut out a few coloured leaves from yellow and orange cardstock to scatter on the ground under the tree, well it is an autumn scene after all.  Finally, I added the sentiment, cutting a fishtail in one end, and raising the middle with foam pads to give the banner a wavy appearance.  A trio of bronze gems finish it off.
