I Love Promarkers DT Card - Colours of Autumn

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Colours of Autumn" and we're sponsored by the Paper Shelter.  I decided to use this sweet Gorjuss stamp for my DT card, stamped on Neenah Desert Storm card to add to the autumnal feel, coloured, of course, with Promarkers, then die cut with a fancy Gold Spellbinders die.  I then used a little gold gilding wax round the edge of the die cut shape to give it a bit of a frame.
 I made the card blank with some orange wood-grain cardstock, it's an A5 card, not a size I make often, it made a nice change from a 5x7 card.
The bottom layer started off as a piece of kraft.  I embossed it with an Embossalicious Swirling Leaves folder, rubbed on some gilding wax in red, gold, and green, then gave the whole thing a good spray with some gold Spray and Sparkle.  The patterned paper is from an old Papermania Capsule Collection pack.
The die cut borders, top and bottom, were cut with a Sizzix die, from kraft card, which I coloured with various Distress Inks.  The branch and falling leaves were made with Spellbinders dies, again coloured with Distress Inks, and I added tiny red gems for berries on the branch.
